I got a firewire enclosure for the 20gb drive off my deceased iBook. I had it setup with carbon 
copy cloner to mirror my drive twice a day on work days. Within a week I killed my Ti 867 
playing with Panther and the mirror in the external drive saved my sorry ass. Probably the best 
$50 I have invested in quite a while.

I got my enclosure kit at OWC and I am very happy with it.
