I've been seriously looking into this lately. Firewire works and theres a very simple editor called Kino that is good for DV capture.

cinelerra is a bit flaky - and the interface is complicated  - but it works. There may not be millions of effects, but it is a nonlinear editor that you can do video editing on. It requires a 
different approach to usual - it is very picky about the sorts of video formats you can edit, but there are tools to convert video to the appropriate format.

I've posted this link before but it worths seeing again:
