Interesting. I'll take your word for it - I was expecting that the amount of data being hauled in and out of RAM might be too much for 33MHz PCI, but maybe not.

All the major distributions have a 180.xx driver in their package managers by now. I've installed it (on openSUSE, in my case) without the need for any command line interaction. If you want to run the bleeding-edge drivers, then you need to learn a little something about how your system works.
