Still no luck finding one here. The person I was thinking of has a
Lombard, which has no firewire. I did get ahold of a 667MHz Titanium,
but its got an Agere FW323. Pretty sure my old man actually has a Pismo,
but its about a 3000 mile drive over to my folks house. The search
continues... I wonder how many people still actually 1) have a machine
with this controller, 2) are running Linux on it and 3) use firewire
devices with it. Both of you, please speak up, we're trying to help you!
(if only out of morbid curiosity to see this mythical goofy controller).
