-	  IEEE 1394 describes a high performance serial bus, which is also
-	  known as FireWire(tm) or i.Link(tm) and is used for connecting all
-	  sorts of devices (most notably digital video cameras) to your
-	  computer.
-
-	  If you have FireWire hardware and want to use it, say Y here.  This
-	  is the core support only, you will also need to select a driver for
-	  your IEEE 1394 adapter.
-
-	  To compile this driver as a module, say M here: the module will be
-	  called firewire-core.

+	  This is the "Juju" FireWire stack, a new alternative implementation
 	  designed for robustness and simplicity.  You can build either this
 	  stack, or the classic stack (the ieee1394 driver, ohci1394 etc.)
 	  or both.
 
+	  To compile this driver as a module, say M here: the module will be
+	  called firewire-core.  It functionally replaces ieee1394, raw1394,
+	  and video1394.
+
+          NOTE:
+
+	  You should only build ONE of the stacks, unless you REALLY know what
+	  you are doing.  If you install both, you should configure them only as
+	  modules rather than link them statically, and you should blacklist one
+	  of the concurrent low-level drivers in /etc/modprobe.conf.  Add either
+
+	      blacklist firewire-ohci
+	  or
+	      blacklist ohci1394
+
+	  there depending on which driver you DON'T want to have auto-loaded.
+	  You can optionally do the same with the other IEEE 1394/ FireWire
+	  drivers.
+
+	  If you have an old modprobe which doesn't implement the blacklist
+	  directive, use either
+
+	       install firewire-ohci /bin/true
+	  or
+	       install ohci1394 /bin/true
+
+	  and so on, depending on which modules you DON't want to have
+	  auto-loaded.
