well I got (for work):

5.25 enclosure (usb and firewire) (http://www.ascent.co.nz/ProductSpecification.aspx?ItemID=335480)

and the cheapest LG Writer (http://www.ascent.co.nz/ProductSpecification.aspx?ItemID=342002)

$165 in total.

Worked perfectly fine as a bootable drive for OS X (hence the firewire) and writing under Windows XP and OS X (Tiger).
Hopefully the enclosure will last (often problem with power supplies on this sort of thing).
