Thanks for the fast reply, Neil! Here's a follow-up question...
If I buy TWO 1TB external 800 FireWire drives and initialize them as a single "striped" drive, can I still install the OS? Or does the startup drive always have to be initialized as "Mac OS Extended?"
If striping is out, could I use the MacBook Pro's internal drive to run the OS, and somehow designate my iTunes library to the external 800 fw?
P.S. Because of a broken screen, my Macbook Pro is now a desktop, so I don't have to worry about the cables disconnecting.
I think the answer to your first question is yes, check out these pages for more details:
You can locate the iTunes Library on any Volume and simply add an alias to it in the appropriate Boot volume location - e.g./Users/yourname/Music/iTunes/iTunes Library
