Onboard firewire

Any luck?

My MB just died, and I’m possibly onto a replacement that has onboard firewire. Has anyone used it with sucess? I’m guessing that the chipset will be the killer (or not). I’ve got a firewire card that works anyway if the onboard is no good.

The other thing is, is the KT333 anygood? Normally I’d keep away from VIA, but I’m desperate…
