    Is there any way to have an external drive (Firewire/USB) which contains
    a bootable OS X partition *and* a FAT partition accesible on a Windows Box?

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Windows cannot read HFS- or HFS+-formatted disks without third-party
    software.

    Very few i386 machines can boot off firewire drives. It would almost
    certainly have to be a machine that has firewire on the mainboard, and
    absolutely requires BIOS support.
