I have added a Firewire port, and cable to match. Now I want to download a DV

2. Once the software is installed and sleeping nicely in its crib, how do I 
activate it so that it will capture the video stream and put it in a file?

I am using a recent Kubuntu unstable, installed from the live cd (so unstable 
that most of Koffice doesn't work yet.) This is written from another
