IEEE1394 problems on Rh9

I upgraded to Rh9 from Rh8 recently.

I have been using an external hardisk connected thru firewire(ieee1394) and used to mount this as "mount -t vfat /dev/sda2 /mnt/ehd"

After the Rh9 upgrade I am not able to mount the external HD the way I used to. But when I take away the 1394 cable and swap a USB cable(the external HD can be connected using both USB and 1394), I am able to mount as above.

would appreciate if anyone can tell me whats happening here, as I used to mount the external HD without any probs using 1394 cable in RH8.

I am having this problem with Gentoo... I have 1394 OHCI support, USB Mass Storage support and all the SCSI support enabled, although the kernel still does not detect the drive until removed from the 1394 card and plugged in via USB.

Did this issue get solved? I have a similar problem with a Sony DVD burner that was detected on firewire and now can only be detected through USB.

no resolution as of yet... I pretty much figured no one had come across this and that 1394 (although the kernel claims support) is just not an option in Linux yet.. :'(
