OT - Firewire drive recommendation?

I know zero about firewire - I've never used it or even touched it.
I have read that you can set up clustering on an external firewire drive
connected to two Linux machines. What I don't know is how to do it - I
know nothing about firewire, historically being a USB user. This is *not*
for a production environment - it is for my own education at home.
What hardware do I need to use to let a single external firewire disk be
accessed by two Linux servers at the same time? I figure I need the
external enclosure, a firewire card for each server, and some sort of a
firewire hub (if there is such a thing). Am I on the right track?
Anyone done this and had any experiences good or bad?
