My question is similar to NightCrawler's.
I have an iMac 8,1 Intel with 300 GB disk.
For backup I thought to get a hard disk and put it in a firewire enclosure.
I also have a hard disk with Windows XP on it and a lot of files that I need to keep, and another hard disk that I want to access.
Now, I have seen enclosures that will take four disks.
Also, could I take the hard disk from my Windows XP PC, put it in the enclosure and boot from it?
I know there are a lot of questions all rolled into one here, but I hope for a single solution, ie the enclosure.
Is all this possible? Any advice on what kind to buy.
