This is kind of what I gathered from digging around last night, but
someone out there must be using atrpms, firewire, fedora 7 and not
compiling things.  I would rather not have to roll up my sleeves and
compile modules myself, but will attempt if no one else is able to get
firewire without doing so.

saw that also, but didnt see how i could get my other kernel modules,
so did not try to use this.
