Hey Folks,

Has anyone successfully used the latest stable kernel with
firewire successfully ??  I use an external hard drive to be able to
take work with me, but with a 2.4.21 kernel, I get the message:

/dev/sdc2 is not a valid block device

While with 2.4.20 (also from, it works perfectly.  This is
on an 8500 using a PCI firewire card with a TI chipset, and running
stock Debian 3.0, except for the kernel upgrade.
