Well, you've been talking about two different problems.  As was pointed out,
raw1394 may be a udev problem, or it may be the driver for the raw1394
device.  You need to establish what module is used for the driver - and
again udev is involved there.  See the code in /etc/acpi/ (from
acpi-support) for how to figure out what modules are associated with which
devices (not that this is ACPI related - it's just the one place I know
where that code exists).
