Thinking about building a custom front end box for a mac Mini.

So here is what I need:
*A SATA to FW 800 adapter for a standard 3.5 inch hard drive* (Currently within a mybook essential enclosure)
*A 3.5mm headphone jack switch* (I want to have the audio out from the mini come in, and I can select the headphone jack on the front of the device or to send the signal to my subwoofer controller below the desk with a switch or a button, or better yet, something that suto detect the jack, the way the iPod does, and automatically sends the signal to the subwoofer elseways.)
*An SD card Reader* Yeah.
*Advise on how to secure USB ports to the front of something... like how to make the frame that would hold them in place...*

If you read this far, high five. *slap*!
