Is this hardware compatible with Mandriva 10.1

Is this hardware compatible with mandriva 10.1? I have tried the site but the link doesn't work. So can someone tell me.

Snapstream Firefly PC remote
Chaintech AV-710
Hauppauge 250
DW 1625 (Lightscribe) - Will it work at burning? For the lightscribe do I have to use windows? It just uses a plug in for nero.

Also is there nayway to get these or equally as good programs
-Alochol 120%
-DVD Decrypter

Thank you.

Add: Just added a few things

Not sure of the exact req for MDK 10.1 but it's easy enough to burn a few CD's and try to install... Cant' harm anything and that is really the only way your going to find out...

I know the A8N SLI has some tricks to getting it working in version 2006 (disabling boot parameters I think...its in the mandriva forums)

I'm curious to know what you found out (if you've tried installing) about the lightscribe drive.
I'm in the market to replace my cdrw drive and would love to pick one of those up, but I want linux compatability.

Not sure about the rest of your hardware.

W/regards to software:
K3b (free) is a pretty good replacement to nero, maybe sans labeling and grandma-friendliness
I'm not sure what features of Alcohol 120 you're hoping to duplicate in linux. I know we can
mount iso images with like 2 lines of command line work, not sure about .bin/.cue and other disk image formats.

Photoshop is pretty well replaced by the gIMP (gnu Image Manipulation Program) the interface
isn't as friendly, but it supports custom brushes/filters and a lot of the same image processing.
(plus its free)

DVD decrypter...are you referring to making dvd's copyable or just decrypting the CSS encryption that prevents a regular pc dvd drive from watching most big hollywood movies without purchasing dvd-viewing software? in the first case, i'm not sure and don't think the forum rules would allow me to tell you the one place that might be able to answer that question. in the second case, libdvdcss manages watching just about any encrypted dvd, and its freeware

Foobar may have a port to linux or I may be delusional, i'm currently not sure. Either way, linux has tons of good audio players. I'm a fan of Amarok, although mplayer, xine or xmms probably have the widest variety of playable codecs

given you've got an av710 and use foobar, i'm guessing you're into more hifi stuff. regarding the actual facts on bitperfectness/quality, I don't know much about the linux players, but could probably answer that in the computers as source forum.
