  I want to buy a removable drive for backup, using the parallel port
(so I can use it on many different machines). I am currently looking
at the ZIP drive and Avatar's Shark drive. I understand that both
of them are supported. I would like to get the Shark drive because
it's faster, but I need to make sure that there is backup software
that can make use of this drive. Can anyone point me to the right
web page for more info? (btw, I am using kbackup now, which supports
ZIP drive and maybe the Shark drive as well...)
