Software for firewire clustering
Firewire allows developers to easily and cheaply build a clustered system on a

Firewire cards needed to build a cluster can cost as little as 10% as much as
the required FiberChannel hardware.
This is some software needed to run Oracle RAC using a shared firewire disk.

replacement kernels for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3. Other recent Linux
distributions have recent enough firewire code, so you don't need any
special software. Just make sure you have the following in your
