I don't know about firewire, but I use an iMic (which is relatively cheap)
with the audio module of the kernel (2.4.16) on a SuSE 7.3 and it works
well: the sound quality is good both in playback and recording.

I don't think ALSA has an USB audio module, but I heard recently of someone
porting the usbmidi driver to ALSA, and I'm sure that in the future there
will be such a driver for audio in ALSA.
