    i have an ibook g4 that will not boot,
    i figure its a bum hard drive since the hd doesnt show up in diagnostics.
    im wondering if its possible to install os x on an external firewire hd through the ibook
    and run the ibook off that?
    the only reason i need the ibook is for portability with my dj program torq,
    i have 2 imacs, a 20" and a 24" but they arent very portable :(
    thanks!

    Yes it's possible to do this.

    A dead hard drive in an iBook is a pain to even try to replace.

    sweet thanks! i was considering replacing hd, but for the trouble i would almost just rather use the situation as an excuse to get a macbook lol,
    but i'm gonna give it a shot.
