Any Linux Distributions that work with Firewire 800?
Title says it all. Do any Linux Distributions work with FW 800 natively? I have a FW 800 RAID that I could put on a Linux or Windows box. If I have to put too much time into getting Linux going I'll just go Windows and be done with it, but if anybody knows of a Linux Distro that would be Plug and Play, I'd try it.

If your card uses the "TSB82AA2 IEEE-1394b" controller (1043:813c), any distro should support it using the ohci1394 module.

See, I have no idea how to tell if it uses "TSB82AA2 IEEE-1394b" controller (1043:813c) controller" It's a LaCie 3-Port FireWire 800 PCI Card.

And apparently RHEL4, the flavor of linux my existing machines have, does not come with or officially support the ohci1394 module. I could rebuild one with a distro that did, but what distros do?
