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... ?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
