iTunes on External Drive Question

Ok, so my library has far outgrown my internal HDD in my Mini, but it is not work paying all this money to remove my SuperDrive and add a second drive, so I am thinking of connecting my 2TB Seagate FW800 drive and moving iTunes to there.

How does the Mini work and iTunes when storage is external FW800

What is the best Boot Only options, I assume small SSD

Anyone have a similar issue, trying to get a handle on how it will all perform???

Im running my 4Tb library on an external...via Firewire800. No issue. And its a drobo, renowned for being on the slow side.
One of everything. Don't forget the fries.
