Hannu was the guy who originially wrote the kernel sound drivers, now 
called OSS/Free.  He then took the more up-to-date ones commercial, and

Look for the supported cards file, and look for your model number in 
there (if you have it).  There are some unsupported Xircom cards listed,
however, most are supported.
