That means that jack does not have the driver you want. 
What version of jack are you running?
  rpm -q jack-audio-connection-kit

The current jack does not have the faado driver included. Someone
(sorry, don't remember the name) was working in packaging the faado
libraries for Fedora, don't know what the status of that is. 

The current driver available for jack firewire usage is called freebob
(the previous incantation of faado).
