Default Firewire800 vs. FW400 vs. SATA

I have a new MacPro and Digi002 and I am getting -6093 error (I know the MP isn't official yet)

I was trying to use an external FW400 enclosure (i think the drive is a barracuda but not sure)..

The enclosure is some CompUsa brand (MadDog Multimedia?) so I'm not sure if it has the oxford911 chipset..

I suspect the drive is the culprit but I'm not sure (anyway to tell?)
Maybe it has to do with how I connect the drive (startup sequence)?

I figure I have these choices so I'm lookin for advice:

1.Buy this:

FW enclosure

and put in a couple ATA drives I already have (not RAIDed) and connect via FW800

2. Buy a preconfigured external FW drive (800 or 400) from someone like Glyph

3. Buy a SATA drive and load it up internally

Portability isn't really an issue at this point, but maybe in the future

I am inclined toward the first option cause it has fans to keep it cool and I can get a long cable to hide it away somewhere quiet. I also already have the drives and I'd like to make use of them

Option 2 is probably the most reliable but most expensive

OK, what say you all?
