Creative Videoblaster under Linux

I have a first generation creative labs videoblaster card (the one that doesnt work in machines with 16MB RAM or more)  Anyway, is there any software to run this card under Linux? Since i have a machine with 12MB RAM doing nothing but handle my modems?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

I have searched everywhere for a suitable driver - to my knowledge one does not exist. What I recommend is that you write your own driver or get a guru to do tis for you if you are not familiar with writing drivers. Sorry this couldn't be a more positive answer,

the driver for the original Video Blaster can be obtained from :

ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/apps/video/vid_src-0.7.tar.gz

however, you need to compile the src code yourself.
The above package include driver & X application (sample) capable of displaying & grabing video.
