    Hardrive + External Caddy

    Should work, neither is SATA. PATA is same as original ATA, also same as IDE. Ultra ATA 100 means ATA/ATAPI-5, that it is to say transfer mode is UDMA 5 supporting up to 100mb/s transfer speeds. Seagate makes quality drives, by the way. Good choice.

    Serial modem with Macbook?

    I have used a Belkin USB serial adapter only for an old palm VII, and this did not work very well (i.e., it only worked sometimes.)

Also, it is not really worth it to watch video with iPod Linux yet: the only format suppported is uncombressed AVI, which takes up as much space as raw DV! It is also a MAJOR pain to convert it to...

    iPod color calendar

    No, you are missing nothing. Progress in iPod firmware is unfortunately often slower than demand... there are any missing features. The best you can do is select individual calendars.

    Sound Quality: Computer Vs. iPod

    The older iPods actually had higher quality components than the newer ones, although it is diubtful that they are better than a computer's.
