I actually own one now that I'm using under M$ W2k.
I am interested in migrating my pro DJ setup to Linux, at least as an
alternate to PCDJ under M$. The other issues would be that there's no
pro-level MP3 DJ package (that I know of for Linux). The other challenge
is setting up IEEE1394 external storage support under Linux.
You may have heard of FinalScratch, but it seems that it's still buggy,
difficult to set up, and expensive. It also does not permit storage of
MP3s anywhere but the OS partition.
I was delighted to discover this list. Thanks again, Patrick, for the reply,
