Pretty please Axel????  I totally understand if he/you don't have time
to do it though.  I am also guessing Axel does not need firewire as
much as those of us privileged enough to be able to use firewire as a
capture device, so I will attempt to do it as described on the thread.

I saw that, and saw the 5 minutes.  I started the process and left for
the day while it was compiling something.  When I get home, if all is
right, I will be pleasantly surprised and happy.  I am guessing
something will go screwy though, but who knows?  My bigger concern is
having to redo this process each time the kernel upgrades.  I will
also be hesitant in upgrading the kernel.  I am just surprised I did
not see any mention of this on the list prior, esp with people
swapping stories on the fedora 7 upgrade.
