    I am a newbie, lurked here for a month, no luck in finding out best way to add firewire to my system. Also would really appreciate specific card/wire recommendations for daw application.
    This is what I have or is on the way (ordered):
    PC 2.6G Celeron...can I limp by w/celeron until Pentium upgrade?
    ACPI Uniprocessor
    intel 82801DB
    512 ram
    Win XP home
    80G Maxtor
    6 usb's
    17" Trinitron
    Fostex F08 8 track 5G HD recorder
    Presonus FireStation Interface
    Yamaha S 80 Keys (long time pianist-new to pc and "daw-land" & it shows I'll bet!
    I am convinced I want/need a stand alone DAW- no email/internet..this will be a dedicated music only machine....pulled an old dell 336 out of the garage for surf/email duty!!!
    Undecided on software- no experience with any or MIDI.

    Any and all help much appreciated!
    Objective- write/record classic rock/projects with my 15 year old daughter who plays a pretty mean Hendrix.....(read Papa be proud!)
    Thanks for the wisdom dudes-...I lurk and think This is SO COOL!!!

    The Presonus Firestation interface and Yamaha S 80 keyboard are both mLAN, but I really don't understand the whole concept very well and have noticed that I haven't seen the term 'mLAN' anywhere in these forums.... damn rookie already replying to his own first post...sorry guys....
