True, the MAC addresses, frame headers (OSI layer 2?) and so on are
different.  Of course the case which the original poster had in mind,
bonding FireWire with Ethernet, would be at least as interesting as
bonding several FireWire interfaces, since most FireWire equipped
machines come with only one FireWire link and one or two Ethernet links.
