I didn't do the work myself, but if you follow the link up above you'll see all the steps the guy took.
I would like to know where you got that Slim Drive? Is it IDE or USB? I want one I want one How does it handle shock from driving?
Its a slimslot panasonic drive (they're the only people who make them) mounted to a firewire bridge. It works absolutely great, if it skips, it recovers usually in time before the buffer underruns in winamp.
