I have the same problem but I think it's a kernel bug.

If you boot the computer without any USB device, it will detect the
firewire drive always, if you have any USB device attached then it
depends on other factors outside of my knowledge.

I tried an installation of Warty in my iPod as a firewire hard drive and
Colin helped me to be able to do it, the only remaining problem to be
able to install and boot from a firewire device is the bootloader.
