So was I.  I've heard that the RT kernel I'm using "isn't very good".  However, it's 
working for me.  The guide I posted on the wiki says just run 'sudo apt-get install 
linux-rt' so that's pretty easy.

I didn't get involved in this project until recently when the FFADO driver become more 
stable.  I've never used freebob.

No.  My laptop only has one built-in firewire port.  I have an ExpressCard with a TI 
chipset firewire adaptor but merely plugging it in causes my machine to hang.  If I 
can get it to work perhaps I'll get another AF12 and do some testing.  If anyone wants 
to send one to me that'd be cool :^).
