Default internal hard drive -> external

Does anyone know a kit where I can make my internal hard drive change to a external one i.e. a case where I can put it in....

Would a USB2 be better than serial? or which is the best for this sort of application?

matters on what you have . . .

firewire operates (usually) at 400mbps

usb2.0 is 480mbps, but usb1.1 is 12mbps . . .

so, if you have usb 2.0, i go with that. . .

if not . . . firewire
