I was having the same problem using Fedora 8 with my iPod over firewire.  I
was able to get around it by reverting to the previous kernel version.  I'm
not at home right now, but I'll reply with the kernel version that works for
me when I get home.

I'd be interested to hear if anyone else is/was having this problem.
Neither dmesg nor /var/log/messages contain any info.  The system just locks
up as soon as you plug in the firewire.
