    I have an external firewire drive and would like to use it as a Windows drive for Boot Camp. Is there any way I can go about doing this or if not if there are any ideas if Boot Camp in the future will allow this in the future?

    AFAIK, you cannot do this.

    I doubt Apple has any plans to allow this in the future.

    What I do not know, is if you have a PowerMac and you create a Boot Camp partition, can you take the HD out and use it as an external one. Maybe someone else has tried this.

    OOPS! :D

    They haven't been updated in so long I forgot about them. :p

    I guess a mini would be somewhere in between since it is at least conceivable for mere mortals to remove the HDD during the install.
