TiVo additional hard drive setup using a PowerBook?

DVRFilter: I just picked up a TiVo TCD540040 and am [predictably] madly in love with it. I also have a 250GB EIDE drive laying around, and can figure no better use than upgrading this baby. I have read this great tutorial, but I have a problem -- my PC/Linux box died a great death a number of months ago, and now I have only my PowerBook (as well as a FireWire disk enclosure I could put the drive into). Have I any options for getting the TiVo to recognize the extra 250GB drive, without hunting down a friend with a PC and a spare drive bay?
