Tethered Shooting on New Mac firewire 800 and original Firewire

The on going saga of switching to Mac after decades of Windows has been an eye opener but I am not going back.

I until recently shot tethered from Windows laptop LR3.6 to my Canon Mark IIs using the original firewire cable , I think it is a 4 pin?

My new Mac Book Pro arrives sometime this week and it comes with fire 800 9-pin connector.

My camera only tethers with firewire so I was wondering if anyone knows if i used a 4-pin to 9-pin connector/cable, if I will still be able to shoot tethered but at FW-400 speeds on LR4?

Anyone have this same setup?
