You are using hotplug to automatically detect your hardware, right?
Seems that it found your Firewire ports and generously assigned an
IP-over-Firewire interface. It doesn't do harm, but if you don't want
to load it automatically, put eth1394 in /etc/hotplug/blacklist. The
exact reverse happens with the airport driver - you want to load it,
but it is not found automatically. Simply put airport in /etc/modules
and it should work fine on the next boot, and use the command
`modprobe airport' to load the module right away. Just make sure you
use the correct interface name, or use the mapping stanza of
/etc/network/interfaces to figure it out automatically.
