Just wondering, can the host computer be a PC?

Formatting issue.
The PC will not likely see an HFS+ format.
If you partitioned the drive and formatted a PC section than should be no issue at all. :cool:

boot from PC?????
Windows will not even mount an HFS+ volume unless you have something like MacDrive5 installed
you can download a free trial version from www.mediafour.com (http://www.mediafour.com)

patitioning the drive will not work
Windows formatting such as FATx and NTFS are incompatible with Mac formatting such as HFS+
the files sytems use different formatting
the drive can only be one or the other
