Ah, thanks! I'm putting a direct link here for when I'm at work.<br><br>ah, cool, they have the cables right there and all. And a USB/Firewire one that's not too expensive! Thanks!<br><br><br><br>my photos
ok, did the Open Firmware and it works! Finder is behaving just nicely. <br><br>I also pushed in the SATA cables on the board under the HD's just in case. They didn't feel loose but thought that wouldn't hurt.<br><br>I will cancel my Apple Store appointment now! Thanks. I'll give it a day or 2 to see how it performs.<br><br><br><br>my photos
