I think you should feel free to take it back to JB with the docket. It
didn't work as advertised. You asked the salesman and the advice was
Grab yourself something like the Asus U3000 Mini (NB that mini)
Which should work fine with a recent kernel.
At least it is for me with 2.6.25 on gentoo as I type.

If however you want the fun of working out which frontend it is and hacking
drivers to load the right firmwares and all this stuff...
Vive La Revolution!
