Pat, I had a thought for you (but then got busy and didn't have playtime for forums ;) ) -- try downloading some "Live CD" ISO files and boot them on your computer and see if they work - maybe the tried-and-true Knoppix, a Fedora one, an Ubuntu one, there's even a CentOS one if you wanna do that - they're everywhere.

The idea is to just try other distros real quick without harming your computer, and see how *they* interact with your hardware and BB device. Just make sure to get something recent and not an old crufty one, you want the latest kernel in a LiveCD that you can get for the best tests...
