what modules needed for firewire ext. hd?


Hi,

I have an external HD with a USB2/Firewire case. When i connect it, the USB2 works fine (as it always did), but i've never used firewire on this laptop before. And so i ask,

What modules do i need to enable in order to connect to my drive through firewire? And would they need to be built in , or modules?

Nothing apeared in dmesg when i connected the drive, but i fiddled around the kernel (ck-sources 2.6.15-ck5), and enabled the following,

Device Drivers --> IEEE 1394 support (y)
Device Drivers --> IEEE 1394 support --> OHCI-1394 support (m) (that's my chipset)

I'm not sure if that's all i need, or if that's the correct one, but after recompiling, i see the following
Code:
ohci1394: fw-host0: OHCI-1394 1.1 (PCI): IRQ=[10]  MMIO=[b0004000-b00047ff]  Max Packet=[2048]

spurious 8259A interrupt: IRQ7.
After pluggging it in and out twice...

Is there anything i'm missing? Thanks.


my chipset is as follows
Code:
06:05.2 FireWire (IEEE 1394): Texas Instruments PCI7x20 1394a-2000 OHCI Two-Port PHY/Link-Layer Controller
