Digigram released some open source drivers, and their cards are 
supposedly well-supported (check the ALSA driver compatability matrix)

I googled for "digigram vxpocket linux powerbook" and also found:

(which I thought was a little amusing because Joern is a (the?) list admin)

Anyway, I have the same card, but not a powerbook, so I felt like 
answering.  It's a great card, and I was lucky to get one when 
audioMIDI.com was blowing them out last year for under $200.  AFAIK, 
JACK doesn't interact directly with your soundcard, but rather with ALSA 
which in turn talks to your soundcard.

Cheers,
Chris
