Coming back to the original question: Apple offers reasonably affordable
Thunderbolt-to-Firewire adapters (Firewire 800, one connection, about
$30).  I have no idea how the driver situation for a Thinkpad (or even a
Mac) would look under Linux.  "Requires OS x v 10.7.4 or later" does not
exactly sound like a long-supported standard chip.
