I'm using a Western Digital Scorpio Blue 320GB EIDE partitioned between XP, Ubuntu, and Linux Mint, and I'm having no problems with the drive. I do want to point out that I'm using ATA/IDE and not SATA, so if there are any compatibility issues with the drive, it may just be the interface, not the drive/manufacturer. However, I've read that the newer Linux kernels support SATA (in the case of Ubuntu, it's been supported since at least the 6.06 release), so you should have no problems with interface compatibility AFAIK. You may have to do a little configuring, but again, that would be for the interface, not the drive itself.
