Firewire Drives:

Built-in Firewire ports on the Blue & White G3 are not recommended with firewire hard drives due to poor performance.

i wonder if the firewire modules are compatible between g4+ g3...
i mean could u just replace the firewire module itself with one from a scrapped g4 ??
(rather then take up a slot adding a firewire card)

i wonder which cards have firewire aswell as disk i/o .. sucks

i guess these are suitable replacements.. at the cost of a pci slot (1 of only 3..)

anyone know any other firewire addon cards suitable for a b&w g3?
i guess the sweet multiport .. if its compatible, also has firewire ports
