An e-mail has come from LINDY, saying it offers no support for linux. They
recomend the ubuntu forums where I have already been (or to buy a new one
lol, i can have windows installed just for capture :] but will be the vista
that came with the laptop and I hate vista).

Anyone interested in making it work?

PCI-ExpressCard/34 2 Firewire Port, you can see it here ->
