Ok so recently i used the adobe flash player 10.2 hybrid hack to install 10.2 on my xserve g5.

i am currently planing on doing another upgrade to my xserve my question is does anyone know where i can get the firewire 800 cable for the xserve g5 i need to find at least 2 of them.

i also wanted to run another mod around someone here who knows about hardware.

i have a free pci slot on my xserve instead of installing a usb hub and running off of the hub would a 4 port usb 2.0 card from lacie work better??

so i can expand my usb to 6 ports instead of just the two....

also has anyone tried firewire 800 yet???

is it stable or should i use my firewire 400 port instead????

or should i purchase a time machine capsule and upgrade the internal drive myself???

here are my system specs as of now.

(powerpc) Xserve g5 single processor 2.0 ghz

4 gig's of ram

500 gig hard drive

80 gig external drive

running 10.5 server unlimited license.

7.1 surround sound usb card

Kodak Easy Share Printer.

any input would be nice....

FW800 cables are available in every half-decent computer store. It's a standard component.
