Cutting up a sawtooth case is just like cutting up any other case. The only thing is you will have a layer of metal and a layer of plastic to cut though. What I would do is cut a hole in the metal that is bigger then the firewire input and make a hole in the plastic that is the same size as the firewire input and mount the firewire cable to the plastic. Or if you don;t have a ZIP drive or a hard drive in the bay under the CD/DVD drive you can just mount the firewire there and only face cutting one layer of plastic.

I'd like to hear how that goes. My USB 2 card also has an internal port, kind of like the firewire on the motherboard. With a similar USB cable like the firewire one you're talking about, I could add a firewire and USB up front. The Zip bay is a great idea, because I don't think anyone in their right mind would use Zip discs anymore when you can buy a 2 gig flash drive for $19. If you go through with the mod, are you going to take pics and describe what you did to make it easier for me to learn from your mistakes?
I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never expect it.
