I have spent a decent amount of time fiddling with firewire on Solaris,
and the only conclusion that I can draw is that it is supported only
for marketing reasons. Video only mostly works, and firewire storage
and others are right out.
Talking to Sun (have a few friends there) hasn't produced any hope that
this will be rectified in the near future, either.
