I have a MIDIator MS-124W that I used to use with linux when I had a
laptop with an rs232 port. It worked *really* *well*, although I never
figured out how to do the setserial magic that would allow it to power
itself from the serial port. 

Now I just have USB and PCMCIA. 

If you might be interested in buying it, email directly.
