FYI:

I've got a Western Digital USB/Firewire MediaCenter 250 GB drive that's
plug and play on Firewire.  It shows up as sda when plugged in an
powered up.  It was much faster using Firewire than USB, almost as fast
as the native IDE drives.  The filesystem is ext3, as VFAT could not
accommodate our large file sizes.
