    i think that is pretty far-fetched. i dont think that would work, ever. interesting thought though

    Search for Target Disk Mode. No, it's a normal Mac process to mount the drive on a dead mac to a working one Via Firewire.

    Here is one URL that goes into a lot of detail. If you still can't figure it out let us know.

    If the drive in the one Mac is really bad, I doubt you will be able to read it but give it a try.
