The drive I linked in the first post, although says 10.5.x+, LaCie has told me via Twitter that it does support 10.4.x.

If I went just USB, I might as well just buy a USB external HD, rather than putting one together myself (something I've never done).

Firewire drives seem to be out of my price range.
