Sorry, but you probably won't be able to get this working, I don't know of anyone who has. To be quite honest, the card's windows OpenGL drivers are bad as it is. Next time, make sure you buy linux supported hardware (I learnt this the hard way too). Mac OS X is a good choice if you want a unix OS with no hardware issues (more relevent for laptops than PC's).

Will.
