[PlanetCCRMA] 1394 Enabled

They are formatted FAT32 I believe. Fat 32 is compiled into your kernel
because I'm using it to access other partitions on this machine, so I'm
hoping it will work.

1394 drives are supported through SCSI support in Linux, so the drive should
look like /dev/sda1, etc.

The nice thing about 1394 drive assemblies is that you can take a drive out
of a PC, put it in a 1394 case using an Oxford 911 chipset, and the drive
will be useful immediately with all of your files there. The magic of
technology actually working! ;-)

Take care,

Let me know if you manage to get them mounted. What filesystem? The kernel
only has read support for ntfs compiled in (current r/w support will
definitely have problems and corrupt the fs). I think here is a new ntfs
TNG project happening in 2.5 but I have not looked at that yet....
