Whew...didnt think it would be that easy.

Here is part 2. for another 500 points.

Is there some kind of adapter (USB, firewire) to hook this old HD to a new laptop, without removing the existing HD that is in the new laptop.

That way I could boot from the existing HD within the laptop, then plug in the old one and get the files I need.

Tks,
Lyndon
