networking usb drives
i've got 2 seagate freeagent usb drives, 320 & 500. for no good reason my main pc has decided it doesnt like them anymore. One doesnt recognise at all now! Yet they work perfectly fine on other computers. what I want is to turn them into network storage devices. should have bought one of those originally doh but
the possibility I can see is
find a low power consumption pc. install either windows xp or linux, share devices on network. i can put it all in a room, i hardly go in near the router. (could it be done off a livecd?)
but are there any other possibilties?

i was thinking there should be some kind of usb hub that networks devices and look what i've found!
USB 2.0 4 Port NAS / Print Server LAN Networking Server on eBay, also, Servers, Networking, Computing (end time 20-Dec-08 08:59:16 GMT)
anyone used anything like this before?

You could just dismantle the devices and plug the drives in to a machine too
