I actually was trying to employ such an approach by searching for some sort of compatibility database or matrix, but my "soich was to no avail". I did look at the database on xlr8yourmac and many posts on cdfreaks but came up with nothing conclusive. I definitely did not find anything (starting from google) that satisfied my linux information needs. Also, the units that I did find info on such as a couple of plexar and lg units, I couldn't find (conveniently) available in the marketplace. I was (and am) somewhat short on time and so could not do extensive searches.
