Hi Mark,


 	thank you for the quick answer. Indeed, looking for alsa and 
firewire, I found "FreeBob", the open source project to have Bebob under
Linux.

 	Some previous posts made me think that the specs were all open,
but the freebob developpers probably did not managed to get them all due 
to an NDA.


 	As I really really want to use advanced sound hardware with my
Linux Laptop, would you know if there is a project like "Linuxant" or
ndiswrapper, that would allow people to use the Winblows driver under 
linux ? (I'm doing this already for my Wifi broadcom based pcmcia card)
