    The best source for information about data acquisition and control
    under Linux is the Linux Lab Project, http://www.llp.fu-berlin.de/

    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, ftp://stm.lbl.gov/pub/comedi

    Circuit Specialists, www.cir.com, 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.
