Any known problems Fedora on gateway solo 9550 se can fedora mt a firewire hardisk

Any known problems with loading Fedora on a gateway laptop solo 9550 se and can Fedora mt an external firewire hard disk for example Lacie fw800/fw400. Should I load Fedora code 1 and then update to Fedora code 2.
Laptop initiallly will run Windows XP Pro and Fedora
Also going to build a desk top for a small point of sales system and looking at the following 1) intel P4 3ghz MB ARP4S61 sis66 1fx or 2) AMD Athlon 64 mb 6702 K8T800. Thank for all help, asking before I leap.

It should be able to run the firewire hard disk. I finally got video off my video camera using firewire. You will probably have to load the firewire modules as fedora does not do this by default.
