If you have closed down device manager, then open it back up.
Right click on OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 host controller and then left click on Update driver. This will open up a box labeled Hardware Update Wizard. Click on next and leave it to find the driver. XP should contain all the files needed to replace the drivers for your firewire card, so after waiting a short while, during which time the box will now say please wait while the wizard searches. The box should end up saying the device is installed and ready to use. If you check again in device manager the yellow exclamation mark should now be gone.
There may also be a red cross through it, this would mean that the device has not been enabled. To re-enable the device all you need to do is right click on OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 host controller and then left click on enable and you should be all set.
