I bought a similiar card recently. It worked fine, just as long as the
ehci usb module is available (or built in). With Mandrake this shouldn't
be a problem, I running unstable debian. I've only really used the USB
ports on it to do transfers off mass storage devices (HD, ipod, digital
camera etc.) and happily get the expected performance out of it. I
nearly got around to testing out the firewire but only had the ipod for
a short time.
