Any chance a FireWire drive will work?



Hello list,

I'd like to add some storage to my laptop (running 3.3), and before I
buy anything, I'd appreciate some advice.

Since a laptop doesn't have much room for expansion, my only options
seem to be USB and FireWire (SCSI via a pcmcia-card is too expensive ;)

My laptop has an integrated FireWire controller, which seems to be
supported, after building a kernel with ieee1394-support of course:

fwohci0 at pci0 dev 13 function 0 "Texas Instruments TSB12LV23 FireWire" rev 0x00: irq 10
fwohci0: OHCI 1.0, 08:00:28:56:00:00:09:93, 400Mb/s, 2048 max_rec, 4 iso_ctx

I'm thinking about buying a LaCie USB&FireWire drive, hoping that it'll
work through FireWire, because USB1.1 is rather slow.

Is there a chance it'll work? Or shouldn't I buy one (yet)? Is there
anyone out there using a similar FireWire drive? Other suggestions?

Thanks!
