250 GB external drives in Linux

    I'm thinking on buying two 250GB drives; I need to attach them to a Linux laptop (probably daisy chained). I like Maxtor's firewire models, but I'm not sure if I will be able to make Linux (RedHat 7.1) talk to them. Does anybody have any experience with a similar configuration?

    (edit: I didn't find Linux drivers in Maxtor's page... anybody has a link?)
