Maudio 1010lt on Debian 5.0.3 with Ardour 2.8 works fine for me.
No fancy breakout box, no phantom power but if your mixer has got channel 
outputs or insert points then it gets the job done on a tight budget. If 
you're handy with the soldering iron then you can make up your own multicore 
breakout cable which will make the wiring a bit neater.
