Thumbs up my plans

Im planning to buy an external hard drive case (usb 2.0) and a 80gb hdd. Ive wanted one of them for ages. I ordered the case today. Cant wait to get the money for the hard drive. Finally i can backup my computer more often, and feel my data is actually safe. Has anyone else here done something similar?

i want to use it at school, and there may be a problem because at school they only run windows 98, and usually we are not allowed to install drivers without special permission
