[NCLUG] RH8.0 firewire failure

I'm having a problem with my new RH8 installation. Upon reboot, the console spews hundreds of these
messages before the kernel ever gets to the RC scripts:
ohci1394_0: Unrecoverable error, shutting down card!
Then, after I've logged in, and looked at the /var/log/messages, I see *thousands* more of the same
message (kernel: ohci1394_0: Unrecoverable error, shutting down card!). I checked the
/var/log/boot.log, and strangely saw this:
rc.sysinit: Initializing firewire controller (ohci1394): succeeded
Even as I type, the /var/log/messages is still reporting thousands of the unrecoverable error
messages. My system has a Pinnacle DV firewire card (with the on-board video capture and conversion
stuff). I've searched google several times, and could find nothing that explains this problem or
how to solve it. Can anyone suggest a solution (besides removing the card)? Any kernel parameters
or new modules I can try?
