My question stems from the fact that I have a FW400/USB2 (using FW mode) drive that does not appear to support booting. I can bless the drive all day long but selecting at the boot options screen gives me no love. Further more, I tried doing a fresh install to the drive and the installer says that the system can't start from that volume. Is it a specific chipset or what's the deal. Be gentle, I'm an old hat at Unix, but fairly new to Apple.
