I am looking to purchase a 2-4 bay external firewire drive to hook up to my power mac g4 dual. Any suggestions? Want to make it a raid setup. So i have a complete backup of my music, photos, and video.

Which raid setup...its confusing me. I want two drives set up for storage and the other two backup. Should I get a case with the swapable drive trays? Thanks for your help.

looks like you want to find a case with a controller that does RAID 1: mirroring. that way, you will have the drives, and an immediate backup of both those drives without having to manually back up anything.

Ebay is the best. You can get one for around $30. The usb2 ones are around $10.
