I can't get my firewire hd mounted. The ieee1094 & ohci1394 seem to load
at boot-up IF THE HD IS NOT CONNECTED, otherwise is sticks when trying
to load the ohci1394. If I do a #dmesg with the hd connected I get the
following info for what I believe to be the firewire drivers and mods:

ohci1394: $Rev: 1010 $ Ben Collins <bcollins@debian.org>

I tried doing this:

# rmmod sbp2
# modprobe sbp2
# mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /mnt/fwE

and get the following error msg: 
mount: /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device

Well, if anyone can make sense of this so that I can mount my fw hd NTFS
partition I would appreciate it.
