The multiface PCMCIA stuff works great, although some cardbus bridges
have issues with it (although similar problems exist under windows).

I'm not so sure that I'd continue to say that RME supports linux all

supported... The older stuff (RME 9652, 9652 HDSP, multiface ,etc)
still work great, however.
