You don't need a CD key for the Linux drivers. I have the same piece of
kit and it works fine.

You might need to put it in:
I've had conflicting reports and just put it in both, so haven't tested

Because nerds travel too.
If the designers of X-windows built cars, there would
be no fewer than five steering wheels hidden about the
cockpit, none of which followed the same prinicples --
but you'd be able to shift gears with your car stereo.
Useful feature, that.
