Hmhm... there is a Xircom Creditcard CE2, which is marked as compatible, but alas, the Xircom CE II is also mentioned lower down, and is branded as unsupported. Didn't notice :(

Bad luck for me I guess :(

This thing with companies not realeasing info on how the cards work inside makes my blood boil. I guess I'll have to tell my friend who wanted to convert that laptop with the busted monitor to a linux consoleless server that he's out of luck unless he runs windows or gets some new cards.


Any idea on any alternate UNIX-like operating system (open source), like, maybe FreeBSD supports this card or something? I'll have to research on that. The last, but most painful for me would be to make some kind of Windows "solution".

Anyways, thanks for some help, and just to be complete on this issue: any ideas on if [when?] there will be support for this card?

Thanks for the help.
