Question MacBook Pro - SATA - FireWire problem - upgrade hard drive

I've 1.83 GHz MacBook Pro. I wan to upgrade the 80GB drive to 160GB

The only think I don't understand in the process is how to connect the new drive to firewire to make the initial backup before I open my MAC and swap the drive.

The problem is with the SATA interface - how do I connect the new 160GB drive to FIREWIRE port? Is THERE a point and an obvious solution I'm missing?

I didn't find any enclosure/case for SATA 2.5 drives for FIREWIRE. Only for USB - but that's slow and I cannot boot from it.

any info most apreciated
