We have two whiteboards at may job. One is Promothean (look like there
are no driver at all for linux), the other is the Smartboard, using the
shipped driver it was quite easy to make it work on an installed
freeduc-cd, so it is installable under a Debian system. However I do not
remember the details of the installation, just remember it was easy.

Hope it helps.
