Or not as the case may be. I think both Warty and Hoary include support
for external Firewire drives but in practice detection is a somewhat hit
and miss affair. Every few boots my drives simply doesn't get detected,
unplugging and replugging doesn't work so I just have to cross my
and reboot. It's extremely irritating!
Good luck with your drives! ;)
