Firewire: Suse or RedHat?


I've purchased a new firewire 3-port PCI card and installed it in a 133Mhz, 48MRam, ooold machine.

After trying a couple of times to recompile the Suse kernel to support the card, I can't seem to get the new kernel compiled. I have to wait up to 6 hours between "makes" and it's getting frustrating.

I thought I might just download RH9, since according to :

It appears to support firewire, "out of the box".

Has anyone any comments on this?

Clearly, I want to try to avoid recompiling my kernel, and I'm using the older machine as a test ground for this kind of thing.
When funds get more plentiful, I'll buy a faster machine and play around with recompiling, but I'd like to access my external firewire right now if I could.

Thanks for any insights.
