advice on iBook firewire, wireless & usb connections saught

I'm running Debian unstable on a new ibook.
Linux roz 2.4.18-newpmac #1 Thu Mar 14 22:44:49 EST 2002 ppc.

I'd be grateful for some pointers.

1) Firewire
   I have a Lacie 20Gb external firewire disk. Is it possible to mount
   this if is formatted suitably (presumably as HFS) ?
2) Wireless
   I'd be grateful to know how to configure eth1 to use my apple
   wireless card. I need to access a password protected Apple 2
   basestation running in the range.
3) USB camera
   I have a super Pentax Espio digital camera which has a usb
   connection. Is it possible to mount this and read the images?
Thanks for any help
