Amazon S3 Import Hardware Requirements

I know that AWS states that a hard drive sent to them for importing into S3 must be Red Hat Linux compatible... but would a "run-of-the-mill" external disk drive such as the Seagate STDR4000100 suffice?

I realize that it doesn't specifically state that it is RHL compatible, but not sure if it would be anyway... ?

(See attached.)

Thanks!

There is no reason for it not to work on linux, but I would test it before.
If you don't have a linux computer then find a friend who does.
