Nothing else attached. If there's a problem w/the FW bus, then I wouldn't think it would matter which keys I hit while booting--unless it was actually booting from the local HD and I didn't know it. Once a Mac is up, is there a way to tell which HD it's booted from?

Yes. When I was done experimenting for the time being, I went into System Preferences and said to boot from the internal HD. Once I was up again, i ejected (and turned off power to) the external HD.
