I wouldn't know actually. Never used one although I am considering the
purchase. OS X is Free BSD based so I'd be maybe 75% of the way there
with system administration. In the end I have the same problem I have
with the 002 though. It's 1394 based so if PT is not stable on the Mac
then the machine is of no value to me.

Possibly a DigiFace with the cardbus interface is a good solution but
I don't know of anyone specifically running that combo under Linux and
using Ardour. Are any of you guys out there usign that?

I'd want the DigiFace vs. MultiFace since I have an HDSP 9652 in my
desktop Ardour machine and would link the two with a bunch of ADAT
