I have not yet finished porting eth1394 to the new stack.  And given
how quickly my test boxes fall over when I use eth1394 and the old
stack, I really don't recommend it.

For now I'd recommend a pair of cheap ethernet cards and a crossover
cable.  If you use gigabit cards, you'll get higher throughput than
FireWire can deliver, too.
