Nope : well supported, should work easily with the ISDN toolkits. The
only problem is if you're got an Eicon DIVA with a firmware version 2.0,
which don't work at present. If it's firmware 2.01 (silkscreened onto
the card itself) then you're fine.

Go google for isdn4linux, which is included by default on RH 7 iirc.
