Hm. I haven't heard of this happening with a LaCie drive, so that's quite unusual -- especially if it's not showing up in the Options screen.

I guess the first thing I would try, given that this drive should be bootable, is making sure the FireWire bus is as simple as possible -- plug only the LaCie drive in. Then, get to the Option screen at startup. If the drive doesn't show up, cycle its power and then press the refresh button in the Options screen. Does it show up then?

If it still fails, I'd try to see if it'll boot a simple OSX install. Take your Panther install disks, and use them to install the OS, clean, to a partition on the drive. Will that boot?
