I thought this might be a link to a message I wrote.  :)  In reading it, 
I see at the bottom I suggested that using firewire drives with vinum 
was unstable and that I would follow up.  However I can't recall if I 
ever posted my findings.

The instability with firewire on my system was due to having specified a 
SCSI delay of only 2 seconds.  The firewire drive enclosure was not 
detected in this short time frame and thus vinum did not find the drive 
when it started.  I did some experimenting and finally found that a 5 
second delay works on my system.  I'm happy to report that vinum and 
firewire have worked flawlessly together since.

Is there some way to add this note to that thread?
