First: This is still an english-speaking list...

Second: That might be your oppinion, but its not a universal rule. I did use 
my firewire-setup with great success for live-foh-mixing and foh-effects. Yes, I 
did have low-latency. Firewire is capable of that...
And I don't think buying an expensive RME pcmcia interface will help Susanne 
because her pcmcia-slot is sharing its interrupt with the graphics card. 
Regardless whether there is a modem, a fw-controller or a rme-interface in 
there, its always sharing its interrupt with the (nvidia-)graphics card...

Have fun,
