Firewire to IDE adapter

Does anyone know if there's such a thing as a Firewire to IDE adaptor. What I want to do is use my internal Firewire port to connect to an ordinary IDE hard disk which would be mounted within the computer case. The idea being to have the plug and play characteristics of an external hard drive (should I ever need to transfer data to another computer), but without the extra desktop clutter and cost of an external drive.

Thanks for that, but I had come across that site, as far as I can see they only do external cases with adaptors in them. I don't really want the case, just a lead with the necessary circuitry to allow Firewire connection at one end and an IDE hard drive at the other.
