the reason why i'm posting this to begin with is, when i select a different startup disk in the control panels, it doesn't startup from the disk i select: i can choose either a cd or the firewire drive in that panel, but when it restarts it just uses the internal drive. same with holding down either the option key or the 'c' key. neither one works.

many sources tell me i should be able to start up from this hard drive: apple, LaCie, and the Mac store where i bought it. no one, however, can give me any useful advice about how to make it happen.

i agree that osx is great--i want to install it, but i badly need to optimize my internal hd first!
