Okay, I now have Broadcast 2000.  Now I need to know what to do with it 
hardware-wise.  Has anyone used Video4Linux?  Firewire on Linux?  Can anyone 
tell me what devices work, and what devices don't?

(And, no, I don't have the Linux Journal yet.  I'll try to get the current 
issue this weekend.)
