I think I found what I was looking for at
Endpoint turns a Linux machine with one or more firewire cards into an
SBP-2 device. The advantage is that you can use any file or device the
linux machine supports as storage, and that multiple clients can sit
on separate buses so they can get the full bandwidth of the bus.
Pretty neat stuff.
