G4 + PT|Mix Firewire freeze

OK, so my friend has a Mix Plus on a G4 (probably an 867) which has worked fairly well for a long time. It's currently Dual Boot, but it stays mostly in OS X -- 10.3.9

An ACOM "Mini Pal" (?) was hooked up to it, and the "spinning ball" was coming up on the screen (or it would freeze -- mouse still moving, however)...we discovered that if the FW drive was disconnected, PT (6.4.1) would work just fine.

He swapped out the drives and got Glyphs -- same response: drives on, PT doesn't come up...drives off, PT works great.

Any ideas? Is this an OS malfunction or a hardware malfunction?
