I bought a Dell PC with XP last September. I just became aware of firewire hardware. How can I tell if I have firewire support?

www.belarc.com ... run it and it will tell you exactly what motherboard you have.  From there, google the motherboard model and check to see if firewire is supported.

In device manager, look for an IEE1394 or Firewire device.

Firewire will most likely show up as IEEE-1394 ... that's just the official name of it.

Callandor is right ... you will be able to see IEEE 1394  in the device manager if you have it.  Right click on My Computer and choose Properties.  On the Hardware tab --> Device Manager
