Belkin Usb Easy Transfer Cable

Does anyone know how to make this usb tranfer cable work in linux?

I have tried to load the usbnet driver and all the minidrivers that are listed on I can't seem to get it work with any of these drivers. I looked in the /proc/bus/usb/devices and the os sees the it. This machine is running fedora core 5.
I have all so tried it on Ubuntu 6.06LTS and Centos 4.4.

/proc/bus/usb/devices output
T: Bus=01 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=01 Cnt=01 Dev#= 3 Spd=12 MxCh= 0
D: Ver= 2.00 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS=64 #Cfgs= 1
P: Vendor=050d ProdID=258a Rev= 1.00
S: Manufacturer=Belkin Corporation
S: Product=Belkin USB Easy Transfer Cable
C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=80 MxPwr=100mA
I: If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 3 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=00 Prot=00 Driver=(none)
E: Ad=81(I) Atr=03(Int.) MxPS= 8 Ivl=1ms
E: Ad=02(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 64 Ivl=0ms

In /var/log/messages I'm getting this.
Mar 28 10:28:41 ns2 kernel: usb 1-2: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 14
Mar 28 10:28:41 ns2 kernel: usb 1-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

Thanks Eric
