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:
... kernel: [   15.822469] Modules linked in: 

arc4 snd_hda_intel(+) thinkpad_acpi(+) uvcvideo snd_hda_codec snd_hwdep snd_pcm videodev v4l2_compat_ioctl32 btusb snd_seq_midi snd_rawmidi i2400m_usb(+) i2400m wimax iwlagn mac80211 cfg80211 snd_seq_midi_event snd_seq wacom(+) bluetooth snd_timer snd_seq_device psmouse serio_raw snd tpm_tis nvram shpchp(+) wmi soundcore snd_page_alloc mei(C) i915(+) drm_kms_helper drm i2c_algo_bit video lp parport usbhid hid mmc_block

crc_itu_t ahci libahci sdhci_pci sdhci e1000e
and
Code:
prompt$  modinfo firewire_ohci firewire-core

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,
~~~ 0;-Dan

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