Well you should first determine if you're willing to add a hard drive to your computer. Some folks aren't up to modifying their computer internally. If you are, great, add that second internal drive (if you ask me in PMs I know where you can get some good deals).

If you aren't up for that, and/or you need that drive to be a bit more portable, then go for the external drive. For example, I use an external at home to store my backups on, because I do transport them from location to location...not to mention other things I keep in that drive. (hides doctor who collection)

You could do a search for Threads and Posts with key words like upgrade hd, internal hd, external hd, and you'll find info. If you have a G4 AGP I would input that way to minimize the search.
