I have a dedicated Lacie onto which I copy my 8GB card in the field.
Currently I have 6 partitions. The Final Cut Pro system to which I
have access requires that we bring in our own drive(s). Now I know that
if I connect this Lacie, I can open Final Cut Pro and edit right away.

However, when I go to store the Final Cut Pro project, can I save it
to this same Lacie (250GB) or should that drive stay exclusively
a repository for the P2 cards?

In that case, should I bring in another Lacie and would I daisy-chain
that to the first? The computer is a G4.

Thanks.

Depends on the project size.... if it's smaller (music video / commercial / short form) then sure- so long as you have scratch space free for the .mov files as they're imported from P2....

How many cards shot total? Recording / Edit format? Project Duration?

cheers-
