I've bought a firewire cable to connect 2 computers together, but i saw that there is no 1394 nic anymore on windows 7 and i had read that microsoft has dropped support for it in windows vista for some reason. So my question is, is it possible to get it working again with a windows xp driver or hacked driver?

Indeed Microsoft dropped tcp/ip over firewire from Vista onwards, probably due to the emergence of gbe which made 1394 networking pretty much obsolete. I don't think its a driver issue, there is just no provision in Vista or Windows 7 for 1394 networking, other firewire devices work fine.

Edit;
OK, I used my l33t googling skillz and found this, you want to check out the ubCore drivers, whether or not they actually work is another issue.
