The best way we found to get mass storage with firewire is to buy a 2 bay firewire case and put a 3.5" hot-swap drive sleds into it(around 75-$100). Then you only have to buy sleds for each drive($25 per sled). Makes for easy backup and can have huge amounts of online storage for really cheap.

If only I have that much money... I'll be pimpin' around with it. But I like the idea by Breaker better due to money.:p
