I've had this card working under debian before, so it is 
possible.  Do a search via google and find the jumper settings, 
and setup your bios to reserve the irq for the card. I'll look 
on some old backup sets and see if I still have this, but I 
doubt it. You definitely have to have manual entries 
in /etc/modprobe.d.
