I would welcome his help. Apparently there are two drivers available?
And you have tried both of them?? I didn't pursue Sergey's because his
web page says that there are not yet docs and implied that they may not
be coming soon.

The driver developed at Insight compiles for both WIN32 and for Unix
systems. Don't know what difficulties that entails, but Byron is the
current maintainer (and was I believe one of the developers) and has
been very responsive to questions and problems.

Anyway, I'll be trying to get something going in the next week or two
and will not be shy about keeping folks up to date on progress :) If
it's OK I'll include you on e-mail and will start copying Sergey too.

Also, Byron, Cary, and Uwe, thanks for your responses. I'll look forward
to your suggestions and assistance getting this going, as your time
allows.

Thanks for your help...
