how to find out if your kernel has support for firewire

Hi im trying to find out if i would be able to conect my canon zr 60 to my computer running fedora core 2. I have a firewire to connect it and a firewire port. Can i use lsmod to see if i have support for 1394? if so what am i looking for in the output?

If you have firewire correctly configured as kernel modules, lsmod should output similar to these lines (somewhere in the output):

ohci1394 35033 0
ieee1394 302869 2 ohci1394,sbp2

(This would be for 2.6 kernels but its probably not too different for 2.4 kernels).
