Western Digital My Book Essential edition-USB 2.0

Greetings to this discussion group from a new user. Just downloaded SD and am very happy with the documentation and support. Unfortunately, I seem to have learned that I should have bought SD before my drive. A quick look at the Guide, FAQ, and some recent posts would seem to indicate that I should have bought one of the other versions that has Firewire if I want a bootable drive. I've never had a bootable backup but a recent crash experience has convinced me the hard way that it would be a good thing. Has anyone used a FW MyBook successfully? I may try to exchange it at Best Buy even though I bought it 2 months ago. I got a great deal ($99 for 500GB), but it's pointless if it doesn't have that capability. If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear them. Thanks, Phil Jelatis
