I could give an iSCSI a try. If you use OpenSuse10 (at leastR2), there is an 
iSCSI target deamon in the distribution.
You can  configure this machine as iSCSI box.
 Then on at least two other servers (or VMWares) install oracle RAC + OCFS2. 
I personally haven't used this setup, but a colleague if mine has tested it and 
it works.
Anyway, this configuration is for education only.

If you are brave enough and have much spare time you cane give  XEN  (v.3) 
technology  a try ;)

P.S. What is the problem is FireWire ? The combination  Oxford911 chipset + 
Maxtor HDD worked  perfectly for me ..
