IEEE 1394 (FireWire) on Debian - Debian

Does anyone have any info to share about 1394 devices on Debian? I just ordered an external IDE enclosure with a DVD ROM drive that uses a 1394 connection and am wondering how to proceed. I'm assuming (hoping) that it's not much more difficult than USB storage devices. i.e. Load a low-level 1394 driver module, load device specific (something akin to usb storage), and mount devices.

    Default IEEE 1394 (FireWire) on Debian

    Does anyone have any info to share about 1394 devices on Debian? I just
    ordered an external IDE enclosure with a DVD ROM drive that uses a 1394
    connection and am wondering how to proceed. I'm assuming (hoping) that
    it's not much more difficult than USB storage devices. i.e. Load a
    low-level 1394 driver module, load device specific (something akin to
    usb storage), and mount devices. Anything else I should keep in mind?

    It's near identical. Since you have the USB stuff already working, you
    don't have to mess around with SCSI stuff from scratch :)

    Just compile the kernel (module or directly) for firewire, ohci1394, and
    SBP-2 device support. If compiled as modules, load the modules and mount
    the drive in the same manner you did the USB.

    [url]http://linux1394.org/[/url] is a good source for info about specific devices.

    Here's a snippet from my /etc/modules.
    ieee1394
    ohci1394
    raw1394
    sbp2

    IIRC, they must be installed in this order.
