Thanks for offering this. This looks very good!!! I would just like to 
know a few things...

Just to make sure... are you using the cardbus echo indigoIO on an 
FC5/CCRMA system?

Which kernel?

Were there any steps I need to know to get it up and running?

Any quirks, I need to know about?

Could you tell me about your hardware/setup, so that the next question 
will give me a better gauge...

...are you getting fairly good, uninterrupted recording when you have a 
few tracks playing and several being recorded at the same time? What 
happens when you get up to 10 mono 24/48000 tracks playing and 2 mono 
tracks being recorded?

Are you using anything as a midi interface (this will be my next step 
after purchasing this)?

Thanks again for pointing this card out. I'm excited to try it...
