I notice Flex sells a 6 foot Granite Digital Firewire cable for the 5000A.  If I were to opt for the 10 foot version of this cable (same manufacturer) am I asking for trouble?  And I've noticed that Granite Digital sells cables with a troubleshooting LED.  Is this a useful option?

You can go up to 15' for firewire cable. I use one regularly in my shack in fact.
