Is there a smaller one that you can recommend and where would I look to 
buy it?

I see these on Special through Dick Smith, Tandy and Office Works regulary
I actually would be happy with 10 but 20 would be great. I really don't 
need more.  It seems to be hard to find smaller new hard drives and I 
don't want to muck around with 2nd hand as the new ones have 
instructions with them

There looks like there are issuses with 3.4 installing as it is meant 
only as a "Live CD" but I still have 3.3 which works well
