Native FireWire on tape drives?...not yet but here are some other solutions:

Orange Micro and Ratoc Systems have both introduced FireWire/SCSI adapters
that allow a single SCSI device to be connected to IEEE 1349 (FireWire).
These are both inexpensive, very new and therefore relatively untried but
would seem to be the best avenues to explore.

The Orange Micro product is narrow FastSCSI only (up to 10MB/s) and lists for $99.
The RATOC product is narrow UltraSCSI (up to 20MB/s) and has dual FireWire ports for 
$89 list
but won't be available until November.

Neither device claims to allow booting from SCSI devices.
Only one SCSI device can be attached to each adapter but several adapters
can be linked on a single FireWire chain.
