I can vouch for the FP10 as well.

There is one caveat with firewire interfaces, you may want to check the
FW chipset that your computer uses as some work a lot better than
others, check with the ffado web site and that of the manufacturer of
the interface.  The recommended chip set is by Texas Instruments.

You can check your hardware with:

   lspci | grep 1394
