Saitek X52 Joystick on Ubuntu 9.10 with 2.6.31

I recently purchased a Saitek X52 flight system (joystick and throttle). I
am attempting to configure it with jscal.

jscal detects only three axes (there should be 11) and no buttons (there's a
lot of buttons; can't remember how many), but it does detect the joystick.
The device /dev/input/js0 also appears. Also, calibration data from jscal
and jstest are erratic, and don't seem to respond to control inputs.

Any help that you could provide would be most appreciated.
