Share a FireWire drive via FireWire networking

I can't believe you would consider hooking one disk drive to two machines at once. Currently the OS has no facility for dealing with two machines accessing the same file system simultaneously. This can only lead to hideous disk structure corruption.

He's not. Not in the sense you're assuming.

When the disk is mounted on one computer, it cannot be mounted on the second; at least until the first unmounts it.

(Hint: this is why the original hint works.)
