Glad to hear it!
OK, so you need a firewire HD to do that.

	But, the next questions are: 
1) would you recommend this kind of hardware (Mac mini) to build a PC 
for a recording studio? 
Or would you recommend a clone standard PC with more power? 

2) Do you think that RME hammerfall and M-Audio soundcards will run fine 
into a Mac Mini?
