Thank you, it doesn't seem to list one. Perhaps there aren't any, or the 
XD100 doesn't have critical mass any more.

Not a Fedora question I know -- but is it hard to write a driver for

and expect to succeed? I am an experienced applications programmer, but 
I've never written a device driver before.
