Hmm, as far as I can see, the reference code I have is for all
nxt200x-revisions (nxt2000-nxt2005), there are some ifdef's for some
So I assume that maybe even the nxt2002-driver could work with your card
when you load the correct firmware. This is most likely the hardest
part: to get the firmware. It is somewhere inside the windows-driver.
Maybe this project can help: http://myhd.sourceforge.net/. They have done
quite a lot reverse-engineering.
