DigiBoards and Linux

Hi,
        I'm posting this in case my last reference to this question got
missed.  We plan to offer some Internet access acounts from our site and
we were going to use a DigiBoard for dialin lines.  I thought I had read
in this newsgroups that Linux can't communicate with a Digiboard.  Is
this true?  If so, please send me an email saying so, and if you could
suggest what other type of serial expansion board we *could* use instead
of a Digiboard, I would be most grateful.


Thanks!

--Bill.

Hmmmm.  Digiboards come with Unix and other *ix drivers, so I wouldn't *think*
there would be a problem.  Too, Digiboard has an ftp site, so you could
probably 'beat up' on them via the net, if need be.  Of course, I'm new to
Linux and still pretty green at Unix, so could be talking out the back of my
head :-)
