SubjectRe: NT/Linux Driver?

Still, it might be possible --- there are many, many, many issues to be
considered though.

There are also some non-technical reasons, even if it were possible

(1) The license agreements for the drivers may very well not allow for use
on an operating system other than NT.

(2) The hardware manufacturer will probably not provide *any* support for
such a use.

(3) We'll almost certainly be stuck with binary-only drivers.

(4) If we start doing this, we will have even less leverage for getting proper
Linux drivers written.
