Firewire drives seem barely usable if at all with the 2.6 kernel.
Try a 'cat /dev/sda >/dev/null' run to see if you can read
the whole thing without getting errors and disconnecting.
I had better luck with FC1, although it wouldn't autodetect at
all.  FC3 should autodetect if you unplug and replug the firewire
cable even though it misses on a reboot and then is likely to
have errors.
