Another update - I spoke too soon.  One of the windows drivers is refusing
to load properly.  I don't know if the signifies a bad card or just that the
driver doesn't work on anything less than xp.  I don't have any way to test
at the moment.  I'm happy to try anything you want in the way of diagnosis
under linux though.
