Has anybody any experience with the Pinnacle Studio Deluxe 8 card installed in a Linux computer???

My father-in-law recently bought the package and is using it on his Win2000 machine. Due to some virus/trojan hacks the question has come up if Linux might be suitable for him.

The hardware on his machine isn't the problem (printer, scanner, videocard, etc). Except the card with came with Pinnacle Studio Deluxe 8.
