Question Firewire DVD on Redhat Enterprise 3 Can't Find 1394 Modules to load


I have just installed RedHat Enterprise 3 (2.4.21-27.0.2.EL).

I am trying to get my external Firewire DVD+-RW to be accessible. I have read MANY posts and seem to be stuck on the loading of the OHCI1394 and IEEE1394 modules. They do not seem to exist on my system and I can't find an rpm for them. Here are snipets showing what I think you will need to help me:

Code:
#which testlibraw
/usr/bin/testlibraw
Code:
#/sbin/lspci | grep FireWire
02:0b.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394): Texas Instruments TSB12LV26 IEEE-1394 Controller (Link)
Code:
#ls -l /dev/video1394
total 0
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root     171,  16 Jun 24  2004 0
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root     171,  17 Jun 24  2004 1
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root     171,  18 Jun 24  2004 2
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root     171,  19 Jun 24  2004 3
Code:
#ls -l /dev/raw1394
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root     171,   0 Jun 24  2004 /dev/raw1394
When I look in the Hardware Browser, under Firewire, I see:
TSB12LV26 IEEE-1394 Controller (Link)
The Device Information shows:
Manufacturer Texas Instruments, and Driver: ohci1394

I have put a DVD in the drive and I do not see it anywhere. I plug/unplug, power off/on, etc. I look in the Disk Management tool and it does not show.

When I try to manually load the modules they cannot be found:
Code:
#/sbin/modprobe ieee1394
modprobe: Can't locate module ieee1394
# /sbin/modprobe raw1394
modprobe: Can't locate module raw1394
# /sbin/modprobe ohci1394
modprobe: Can't locate module ohci1394
#/sbin/modprobe video1394
modprobe: Can't locate module video1394
Here is my list of loaded modules (no 1394s):
Code:
# /sbin/lsmod
