Button events of external HD WDXB2500 (using ieee1394)

I have an external firewire connected hard disk (Western Digital 250GB Dual Option -> ) which has three nice buttons on it (one for shutting down and two for probably any other function).

The drive works great .. my problem is not a serious one, I just wonder how to use the buttons on the drive.

As a first idea I inspected /var/log/messages when pushing a button as well as the output of dumpiso from the libraw1394 package, but both have nothing to say.

I'm using Fedora Core 3 with Kernel 2.6.9-1.667.
More details of my system can be seen under the link above.

Any ideas ? .. thanks in advance.
