As far as I know booting from FireWire should be much easier, but I
never tried it.

You don't even need a disk attached via FireWire if you have a second
Mac that supports target disk mode - just hook both up via their first(?
- sorry, don't remember if this is important) FireWire ports and start
the one to boot from in target disk mode first.

Though I'd say it's less convenient than to use a separate disk. But if
you're short on FireWire disk adapters but have plenty of Power Macs,
why not? :-) If you have one of the first iPods with FireWire, these can
also be used for booting IIRC.
