    I have an OWC external HD and if i get another i know i get 'daisy chain'. Simply put, that just means- since there are 2 FW800 ports i can connect the new external HD to the second FW800 port on the initial HD that is connected to my computer, right?

    Nope, one power adapter per drive. Unless it is a 2.5" drive and the firewire enclosure supports bus power.
