According to this article at Phoronix, Creative are not too interested in making a driver available for Linux.

wait for about 2 months, as these cards are becoming more popular and someone will program the interface code.

Diamond is a generic card that works well, or you could use one of the options for older drivers to work, but won't have all the features.

Or, you could simply listen to a radio while using linux.
