Most adapter chipsets are supported, the main exceptions being the first
chipset Adaptec released (no longer in production AFAIK) and the chipset
Sony use in some though not all Vaios.
As for making use of it, there are patches available that will support
hard disks and IP over firewire. Userspace applications are available
that can talk to digital camcorders, ripping out the DV stream, and a dv
codec is available to play with the stream. Don't go looking for a
production studio environment though.
