Thats your firewire controller. I assume that you haven't installed a PCI firewire card, and so the controller will be integrated into the motheboard.

There should be a way of disabling this, either in the bios or on the motherboard itself.
To get into the bios, reboot or power on the system. As soon as your monitor LED turns from amber to green, press the DEL key repeatedly. This should get you into the bios.
Once in there, look for any settings relating to IEEE 1394 or firewire & disable them.

If there aren't any in the bios, then it will probably need to be done by moving a jumper on the motheboard. Do you know the make/model of your motherboard?
