What external chassis are you getting? all you need to make sure if it is SATA and/or PATA (IDE)
Well the last time I bought one on Craigslist I bought an external enclosure and drive. Maybe they were separate items and the person selling them had just combined them, not sure. But the product I purchased was an external 80GB hard drive out of which the actual drive could be taken out and other drives be put in.
An enclosure is typically about $10-$20, while I'm having people offer me external 500GB drives for $30-40, so I'd prefer to go w/ the latter if they can accommodate that.
