OK, I've uploaded my wiki entry for the card:


The biggest issue in getting it working at all was obtaining firmware; luckily 
I ran across a forum post somewhere that pointed out a suitable source. My 
wiki entry has got caveats about the audio problems. With any luck I'll find 
a solution and be able to make appropriate edits.

I used the standard drivers in the kernel; I haven't tried anything 
from the v4l site itself. If you try that approach and don't have the audio 
problems, I'd love to hear about it.
