Has anyone tried installing Tiger on an external Firewire drive and been able to boot up three OS's. Two already in the mini with the Windows Partition and the OSX, and the third OS (OSX) on the Firewire drive. Is this possible or not? Has one one done it?

Well, you can do Boot Camp for OS X and XP, but to get the third, you install Linux on the Windows partition. So to get into Linux, you choose to boot into Windows, and then choose to boot into Linux.

It works, I have read about it.

So this is the only way to get three OS? I don't want Linux I want OSX, XP, OSX FIREWIRE DRIVE. Is there any possible way to boot OSX, XP and OSX from a firewire dirve?

why would you want to do that anyway ?
nothing below panther works on the ppc mini's and nothing below tiger on the intel mini's

and having two tigers is a bit overkill

I recently tried to install XP to my LACIE external drive and it would not install.
Are you saying that one can install a OS to a external drive?
Thanks
