From a column at ZDNet: "To my complete lack of surprise, Linux 2.4.x includes basic support for FireWire and the addition
of SBP-2 drivers to the kernel source is evidently not far off. Clearly, someone is paying
attention over there. Windows also apparently has decent SBP-2 support today, though I
confess I am unable to try this out since I don't have a FireWire-capable Windows box."
