I've had success with 2.4 kernel SuSEs using a PCI card Dynalink EXPO202-B11
that has the Lucent 1646T00 and 1034AH-J chips.
A sticker on the back says 1456VQH-T2 and this
www.dynalink.co.nz/products/specs/1456vqh-t2_specs.htm specs URL says it
works with Linux as well as Windows.
Mine is probably 18-24 months old and so may well have been superceded.
