Just a followup to this problem.
It would appear that eth1394 is blacklisted in some
distro's because it caused some confusion over network
I found this line on the net
# causes no end of confusion by creating unexpected network interfaces
My main gripe is how hard it was to find any information
for this, it would have been nice if modprobe returned
an error message that was a bit more informative.
