Nope, still no dice. Will poke more soonish, I'm inclined to think its a
userspace issue...

Should be doable, yes. If you've got a line in modprobe.conf of 'alias
scsi_hostadapterX firewire-sbp2' (for some value of X) and the array running
when you create your initrd, it *should* automagically include the necessary
modules in the initrd. I'd probably run mkinitrd -v by hand to see for sure.
