5ms is _really_ short enough. Anything below 20ms is good enough for playing 
piano (and doing software monitoring). And to compare it with the other 
operating system not to be named here, that is actually pretty good.

If you only record, be sure to use higher latencies to give your disk more 
time and to allow larger junks to be processed. But not to large as the 
firewire-host could not like that. :-)

Be sure to test your setup before. And be sure to tell us how it went!

Have fun,
