On a side note the guy in PC world assured me "in his extensive computer experience that this card WOULD NOT work in linux", what is wrong with people who think they know a little bit, a simple "i don't know" would of been more helpful.Heh.. I'm reminded of when I went into PC World and told them I wanted a hardware internal PCI modem. Salesman introduced their "Modem expert" (read: he saw one once out of the box). He proceeded to tell me that there is no such thing as a hardware PCI modem as "PCI means software and ISA is hardware"... Yeah.. OK.... When I replied pointing out that PCI and ISA are simply two types of bus connecting the card to the motherboard and that technically what was *on* the card had sod all to do with the connector, his mate who introduced him to me wandered off.
