Hi all,
I've been unable to use my Lacie firewire drive in FC1 Planet CCRMA. The 
drive works under knoppix kernel 2.4, so it should also work on the 
planet. Here's what I've found different:
On knoppix, there's no /proc/bus/ieee1394 directory.
On FC1 that directory contains the file "devices" which says:
Node[1-00:1023]  GUID[00d04b380e097569]:
   Vendor ID: `LaCie Group SA  ' [0x00d04b]
   Capabilities: 0x0083c0
   Bus Options:
     IRMC(0) CMC(0) ISC(0) BMC(0) PMC(0) GEN(0)
     LSPD(0) MAX_REC(64) CYC_CLK_ACC(255)
   Unit Directory 0:
     Vendor/Model ID: LaCie Group SA   [00d04b] / LaCie 1394 Disk drive 
LUN 0  [000000]
     Software Specifier ID: 00609e
     Software Version: 010483
     Driver: SBP2 Driver
     Length (in quads): 8

The file /proc/scsi/scsi on knoppix includes(apart from the cdrom):
Host: scsi1 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
   Vendor: WDC WD16 Model: 00BB-00DAA3      Rev: 75.1
   Type:   Direct-Access                    ANSI SCSI revision: 06
On FC1 it only includes the cdrom, when the fw drive should be there as 

Also on FC1 there is a directory (which is not there on knoppix) called 
/proc/scsi/sbp2_1 which contains the file "1" which contains:

Host scsi1             : SBP-2 IEEE-1394 (ohci1394)

Module options         :
   max_speed            : S800
   max_sectors          : 255
   serialize_io         : no
   exclusive_login      : yes

Attached devices       : none

I've already added the following to fstab:
/dev/sda2 /mnt/fw1 ntfs noauto,users,exec,ro,umask=000,uid=root 0 0
/dev/sda3 /mnt/fw2 vfat noauto,users,exec,umask=000,uid=root 0 0
/dev/sda5 /mnt/fw3 ntfs noauto,users,exec,ro,umask=000,uid=root 0 0
Which were generated by knoppix, and work there.
Then trying:
mount /dev/sda2
mount: /dev/sda is not a valid block device

ntfs support is working since I can read from the Windows partition on 
my internal hard drive.
Any ideas what could be missing?

Many thanks,
