What's wrong with your firebox?  my presonus firepod works great (could even
say flawlessly, if you don't count the brief setup required), the firebox
should be the same chip and have the same results.  What message do you get
when you try to run jack with ffado?  Oh, and you are running Jaunty right?
And have you opened Ubuntu Studio Controls and checked the 'enable raw1394'
checkmark box?  If you're on an earler Ubuntu Studio version, maybe you
should just used freebob, that worked fine with presonus cards too and it
saves you the troubles of attempting to compile things yourself.  The only
reason why it's not officially supported is because Presonus has not donated
a card to the FFADO developers, everything works great.

Can you post the output of these two commands:
grep -H -n raw1394 /etc/udev/rules.d/*
grep -H -n raw1394 /lib/udev/rules.d/*
