Yes, you can do this, you can also simply put it in a drive dock and run your iMac from it there as well.

Thanks, Miriam. I had no idea those existed! I've decided to use an external enclosure. Thanks again. ~ Bob

You'll note that harddrives do not last forever. Don't rely on it. Back up all data.
Has everything interface:
FireWire 800/400 + USB2, + eSATA 'Quad Interface'
save a little money interface:
FireWire 400 + USB 2.0
This web page lists both external harddrive types. You may need to scroll to the right to see both.

Thanks. This is all pretty much an academic exercise. I have every thing backed-up. I've ordered an enclosure with USB 2.0 and eSATA and SATA connectors. There might be a thing or two on the HD I will get off, but for the most part I have backed up everything...Thanks again. ~Bob
