Help me run a live linux distro off a usb key on my Macbook Pro.

Can you suggest a decent, cheap external firewire or USB CDRW that works with OS9?

My mother has an older iMac running on OS9. I'd like to upgrade her to a new one but can't afford it right now. I need to buy an external firewire or USB CDRW that will work with OS9 so she can easily back up her digital photography; can anyone suggest something decent and cheap?
