I have seen people claim to run that board with debian before, and being
an nvidia chipset, it generally has no problems.
Firewire is never a problem in my experience. It seems that unlike usb,
the firewire vendors did actually agree on a software interface, so that
a single driver should run all PCI firewire controllers made by anyone.
I have yet to meet one that didn't work. Firewire 800 might be
different, but all the 400Mbit ports have worked that I have tried.
