I am looking to extend my USB ports on two computers.  One windows XP the other is running Linux.  I  am wondering if anyone has played with this unit on a Linux platform?

Ok, so far the windows side works just fine.  Plug in and away it goes.  The linux side is proving somewhat problematic.  I am still testing though.

Ok, the system doesn't work on Red Hat at the moment.  The drivers for the linux side have not been developed yet that I have been able to find.  Will keep an eye on the situation for the future.
