I've problem to mout the 1394 device. Currently, I've one external DVD burner to backup my data, linking my laptop with 1394 interface. I could mount it, but the speed is tooooo low. I don't why it happens, could you guys give me some ideas?
Thank you in advance.
PS: When i try to using umount command, why there is always some errors showing the devices are busy.

I had to do the following to get firewire working in fc3, not sure if it will help with your problem or not:
Type, as root: mknod -m 666 /dev/raw1394 c 171 0
Then, add the following line to /etc/rc.local: /sbin/modprobe raw1394
Reboot, or type /sbin/modprobe raw1394 as root

as for the umount problem, try:
umount -l <device>
seems to be the "lazy way" whatever that means... it works for me though on zip disks.
