How practical are firewire networks? What are their limitations? I'm currently under a relatively fast 100mbps Ethernet network and according to SiSoft Sandra 2002, it runs at 11MB/s (megabytes per second). Also, according to Sandra, a firewire network is a couple of megabytes per second faster.

Well, it's annoying how I have to wait a minute or two to transfer a couple of gigabytes of MP3s. Anyway, I think I can live with my 100mbps Ethernet but I'm just curious, I just want to know.

I used to think mine was slow- try this little test: copy a large file (or folder full) accross the lan, then copy the same one next to itself, time each one, I can copy accross the lan (100meg ethernet) faster than I can copy from my pc (1400@1700 athy, ibm deskstar 60) from my server (k6-3 450, maxtor 7200 cant remember which one) faster than I can copy locally.
