Good Linux-compatible PCI Firewire Card?

Can anyone personally vouch for a good brand or model of PCI firewire cards to be used with Linux?

I'll be using it on Gentoo, Fedora, Ubuntu, and Suse. has some Firewire cards for as low as $5 but I'd much rather pay an extra $10 or $20 if I know that I won't need to tear my hair out to get it to work.

AFAIK, all firewire cards are OHCI-wahtever complaint.
(just like allmost all USB 2.0 devices)
This means that they all just work automagicly.
