    Firewire HD


    Hi guys, I have a question - another one . I recently bought a firewire/USB enclosure for HD's, but the Firewire HD isn't recognized by Linux . I already checked on the SuSE support page (http://portal.suse.com/sdb/en/2003/0..._firewire.html) for more info, and also on the Linux Firewire site (http://www.linux1394.org/index.php). So this is what I did (according to the info I found):
    a load of modprobe commands, none of which returned any output (which should mean al the modules are loaded, right?):
    Code:
    linux:/home/stijn # modprobe ieee1394
    linux:/home/stijn # modprobe sbp2
    linux:/home/stijn # modprobe -r sbp2
    linux:/home/stijn # modprobe ohci1394
    These ones returned an error message though, but I don't know what to do with it:
    Code:
    linux:/home/stijn # /sbin/insmod ieee1394
    insmod: can't read 'ieee1394': No such file or directory
    linux:/home/stijn # cat /proc/bus/ieee1394/devices
    cat: /proc/bus/ieee1394/devices: Onbekend bestand of map
    I have 3 internal HD's (2 S-ATA, sda & sdb, and one P-ATA, hda); this is what I get from the following command:
    Code:
    linux:/home/stijn # hwinfo --disk
