RE: Aurora serial cards

Hello Daniel,
I also have one of these cards. unfortunately I don't think that there is a
driver, and Aurora have not been helpful (best answer I got was they don't
support linux, and I was asking for further interfacing info so I could
write a driver)

hope you have better luck, so I can use it too :-)
