once it is installed system profiler should be able to tell you the chipset. I know that Windows can.

OK, what's the deal with the Ti chipset vs. others?

The reason I ask is that I bought an IOGEAR PCMCIA FW card for my TiBook 500 (the onboard FW died), and it completely hosed two external drives.

System profiler says this about the card:

Function: FireWire Controller
Vendor: Unknown
Type: CardBus
Vendor ID: 4358
Device ID: 12356

After trying a second IOGEAR card with the same results (at that point I wasn't aware of issues regarding different chipsets), I gave up and bought a logic board for the Ti on Ebay. I still have the PC card and wouldn't mind knowing if the reason it didn't work was related to the chipset in it.
