Hi all,

I have a Maxtor 5000XT external firewire/USB2 HD. It worked wonderfully
with RH 9. I had it mounted as /dev/sda1 through /dev/sda3 (It is
partitioned into three). I upgraded to Fedora (applied the upgrade to my
RH9) and now the system tells me that 
"/dev/sda1 is not a valid block device". If I hook it through USB it
works OK. How do I find the device that is hooked through firewire? Is
there any change?
