This is a rough propsal.
Can I take a powermac, stick a sata card in add lots of disks (JBOD) and then boot into Target disk mode and use as FW drive (maybe add a FW800 PCI Card)
More advanced maybe use as Raid 5 etc?
And can it be forced to open as Target disk mode everytime?
No Target Mode will nly disply the main boot drive & the Optical Drive, Networking would be the only way to use it the way you want, sorry.
