Should both work.
I'm not sure; check the hardware compatibility list (someone else
already mentioned where to find it). If it's not there, check
http://www.xfree86.org/ and/or http://www.xig.com/ to see if either of
those support it.

I believe this isn't supported, although it might be if you
get OSS; see http://www.opensound.com/ .

Should be fine.

I *think* only SCSI writeable CDs are supported, but I might be wrong.

I don't know about this specific device, but lots of "generic" Ethernet
cards are actually based on DEC (or compatible) ethernet chips, like
the 21040, 21041, 21140, 21142, and 21143. If you have one of these
chips on your card, it might very well work. But then, there are chips
which are *supposedly* compatible but not really, and some of them
don't work. So it's hard to say.

My guess is may work O.K. as just a regular mouse, but beyond that
I don't know.

I think only SCSI Zip drives (and Jaz drives) are supported. One
possible source of information is the homepage for ZipTool, which is at
