I'll check that, don't think so

Not incompatibilities, it's just that the ESS chipset is plug and pray and needs configuring. I've got the same chipset built into the motherboard of this heap of junk from that well known U.K. box shifter "Time". You can use isapnp as I do, but due to a bug the standard isapnp supplied by Michele just doesn't work (Yes I am working on a muLinux fake /proc filesytem Michele, I haven't forgot :^))I'll email the new binaries so you can configure your card by hand but I'll have to boot up Windoze for the first time in months to send you them 'cause there's no way to glue binaries to emails with this mailer :^((
Catch you later on the bloated side of my hard disk !
