Thanks!

I had tried that and got an error when the install.sh tried to test the 
module it built. It then gave me instructions for doing it manually; 
those instructions were for compiling the driver into the kernel, I believe.

Maybe the module was fine and just the testing procedure was off.

In any case, the sk98lin mentioned later in this thread worked.

Take care,

Kurt
