    Been trolling around on Apple's support forums and it appears that after installing Panther, many folks have lost access to their firewire HD's. Anyone here having the same problem?

    Here's another link of info:

    Gotcha.

    Man... I'm REALLY tempted to copy all my important crap over to my spare 60GB hard drive, clean my main HD and install Panther. I'm a pretty seasoned Mac geek, so you'd think I wouldn't be so skeered. Guess I know from experience what these major installs can be... or not be...
