I _think_ you can go to /boot/grub/grub.conf and disable hardware checking for firewire.
There will be different sections, looking somewhat like the one below, for each kernel you
have installed. Add "nofirewire" - minus the quotes - at the end of the "kernel /vmlinuz" line.

Code:
title Fedora Core (2.6.6-1.435)
	root (hd0,0)
	kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.6-1.435 ro root=LABEL=/ acpi=on rhgb quiet
	initrd /initrd-2.6.6-1.435.img
