using the claw game controller

not sure really where to post this- could be game related or hardware.
does any one use a game controller, sold as "the claw" , with linux?
i checked the claw website, supposedly there is unofficial support for the device under linux, but the links to the unofficial linux support are not working. if any one has any info, or can point to some websites, please let me know. thanks.

hi again,

my "the claw" is an usb device. it is recognized by my suse 8.2
as "the claw". so my guess is that the unofficial support for the claw under linux is probably a usb driver? done some years back.
so, if the device is recognized in linux, then the next step would be to try
and make a configuration file and link to a game like ut2004 demo for linux.
i would need to map the buttons on the claw to the keyboard keys that
a game uses. does any one have any hints or clues as to how this could be done?
if doable, does any one know what file actually launches ut2004demo
in linux? thanks again for any advice, help etc.
