Thanks - I just registered the drive with WD and will start a support ticket tonight.

And I did discover that the Passport Studio (at least this particular one) will boot and run via firewire, provided that I disconnect and reconnect it at the point where the computer is looking for the drive to boot from. Apparently the drive is in some sort of sleep or standby mode at the point, if it is already connected to the computer during a re-boot. Powering (connecting the firewire) just prior to bootup awakens it to the point the Mac will see it.
