Same, ive got 2 x 90002 Hauppauge Nova-T DVB cards running on a FC4 box and
it worked without any problems, you can check to see if its loaded at
startup by using

dmesg | grep cx88

or by using

lsmod | grep cx88

to see if the modules are loaded. The only difficult but that I havent
bothered doing because it seems like too much hassle is to get the IR
working on the 90002 cards.. not all the buttons work etc.

Luckily I also have a PVR 250 which does the job nicely although I would
like to retire this card at somepoint.. anyone have a good 90002 IR guide ?
