    Regarding Windows XP SP3, ALL your drivers should be backed up before applying this Service Pack. It's not just the firewire drivers which can break or turn up missing.

    Also, before doing any major Service Pack, users should make a full image backup or clone of their Windows partition or drive. It only makes sense, as hangups and other failures can occur.
