No I think the OP is noting that the firewire drive that he bought says on the box that it runs on windows and mac systems.

Like many things you can buy at the store you can often get them working on linux by searching around for drivers.

As I said in my original reply if he is working off the list of hardware that Jeffrey Hunter says will work he should be good. ( That's why there are several pages of documentation in the beginning of that article about exactly what does work and why you should stick to items on that list ).
