The best source for information about data acquisition and control
under Linux is the Linux Lab Project,

There does not appear to be a driver specifically for the PCL-818L,
but there are drivers for similar boards, such as the PCL-711.
Drivers for these boards are not difficult to write -- I just got
a patch for a new one the other day. Check out Comedi, the Linux
Control and Measurment Device Interface,

Circuit Specialists,, sells PCL compatible boards and
also publishes programming info on the web. I like companies like
this. I'll check the programming info for their 818 compatible
card and find out how compatible it is.
