I use a 200G IDE HD in a drive enclosure.
Works well on Linux, Windoze, and Mac (Fat32 of course).
It is a 5.25 inch so it also takes my DVD burner, which also works well on
Linux and Windoze (not tested on mac, but it should work).
Speed is slightly compromised, but it has never been an issue.
I have the firewire and USB model, you can get the USB only model cheaper.
Make sure you have the SCSI HD module loaded in your kernel before you plug
