Use your OS X install disc

Boot to your OS X installer disk (put the disk in the drive, restart, hold "C" at chime until the apple comes up)

Depending on your particular version of OS X (Panther, Tiger, Leopard), go to either the "Installer" menu or the "Utilities" menu and select "System Profiler"

See whether your FireWire bus (and any attached devices) show up under the Firewire heading.

My G4 mini lost FW for a whil

My G4 mini lost FW for a while. There is a fix for it, IIRC it means you pull the power for a while. I think it involves resetting the soft fuses on the mobo and getting the mobo to rescan for the port(s).

See here about 1/3 of the way down, the first response from "Mike Mihalik, LaCie" should be it.
