Concerning FireWire Boot Drives
Authored by: MacTipper on Apr 04, '08 08:09:43AM
After having to go around a year booting off an External HD, I've discovered that you don't need to do this with a FireWire HD. In my experience, you can even charge while it's unplugged. As long as you plug it back in before you wake from sleep there's no problem.

For those interested, I was using an iBook G4 1 Ghz. I don't know if that makes a difference though. Also, it doesn't work if you have a USB device plugged in.
