Question firewire drives not all recognized


I've recently switched from using 2 PCI IDE cards for
an 8 hard disk RAID, to using an external enclosure
with 4 Oxford Semiconductor IDE-Firewire bridge cards.
This connects to my computer now at the PCI Firewire
card it has. It is all hooked up correctly with master
slave settings and windows sees the drives without a
problem (sad isn't it?). Once I boot into to Linux, however, only the
master drives are seen on each brdge card. I can see
all 4 cards and the 4 master drives, but the 4 slave
drives will not be detected. Is there an argument i
need to pass to the modules when they are loaded? I
have looked all over and cannot find any information on
this.

Heard a rumor from a friend of mine about Red Hat's kernel
not working correctly with firewire devices.

Downloaded and compiled kernel version from kernel.org 2.4.26.

All 8 drives are seen fine running off of this other kernel.
Hope this helps anyone else with this problem.

Problem solved!
