What's the USB ID on it ? We have one here. I'm trying to convince Glen
to take a week off, and stay at home hacking at a driver for it :)
Short answer is;
No. There aren't drivers.
Long answer is;
There is a partial driver, though it requires the microcode for the
various different models. If you want, I have a patch for the 2.4.4
kernel, that seems to support (nearly) one of the chip implementations.
