getting Belkin Firewire-800 ExpressCard/34 working on Ubuntu 11.10 (Mint-12)
 
Belkin parts are usually very good about working in a Linux laptop.
So I bought one.

My kernel says that firewire modules are present.
Do I need special modules for ExpressCard in general -- separate from the actual device (Firewire) being implemented?

Code:

I'm pretty technical -- over 10 years of linux geeking -- but I don't know enough to guess what someone needs to know to help me sort this out.

The Device:

Belkin Firewire-800 ExpressCard/34 model F5U514

My Laptop:

Lenovo Thinkpad X220t "Convertible" Tablet-PC

Thanks in advance,

Bump

Come on, people, someone must know something about ExpressCards and Firewire
on Linux ... Ubuntu 11.10 (Mint-12)?
