Liteon 1693S for Mac?

I am a Mac user. I am interested in getting the Liteon 1693S. AFAIK it works OK in a Mac as an internal drive, but since I am using an iBook, I need to use it as an external drive. I can put it in a case and connect to the Mac by USB, but the salesman said I need to install a driver for it. I tried the Liteon web site, but got bogged down there. I think it only works with IE windows.

Could anybody help? I need to know if the DVD writer does indeed work with a Mac as an external drive, and if possible, get a driver for it.

TIA

Sorry, let me add that it does not have to be USB. Firewire (or 1394) should also work.
