sorry, i wasn't trying to be rude. its just that its a very frustrating
situation, and a quick google for "linux audio firewire" will reveal the
situation in all its gory details.

yes, people are using various BeBob (BridgeCo DM1000 chipset-based)
devices, but they are almost all very skilled and experienced linux
users who do not mind messing about with alpha-level software. if you're
such a person, you could consider trying out the m-audio 1814, but you
should first check that it uses the DM1000 chipset because otherwise,
you will be totally out of luck. The new DICE chipsets are starting to
appear in street products and these will not (AFAIK) work with freebob).
