In kernel 2.6.16, the brand new sky2 driver drives this controller.  You'd 
have to configure and build a new kernel in order to choose and install 
this driver.  You can also download and install the driver for earlier 

In kernels prior to 2.6.16, you have to use Syskonnect's modified sk98lin
driver.  Note that there is an sk98lin driver already in the kernel source,
but it won't work with that controller.  Instead you have to go to
http://www.skd.de/e_en/support/driver.html, choose product SK-9E21, and
download and install that driver.

Good luck,
