I've used an Adaptec 3 port full height PCI and a 2 port 1/2 height
PCI (Dell sold me the 1/2 height for an Optiplex small form factor)
and a 3 port Adaptec PC Card in a laptop and all 3 worked perfectly
fine with the CentOS 4 kernel-unsupported build. (regular CentOS
4/RHEL 4 kernel doesn't support firewire). It worked perfectly in
each case. I'm sure you won't have much problem, just don't buy
"Stinky's Firewire Card" brand... use a name you trust.
Does anyone know if RHEL 5's kernel will now support firewire by default??
