If it hasn't been reccomended already, I'd highly reccomend the ViewCast 
Osprey cards. I have the Osprey-200 in my PC right now and I've been 
very happy with it (Linux drivers can be had on ViewCast's site)..

I haven't actually attempted to capture anything via Linux yet, but I 
have used the viewing program to view the stream coming into the card 
and it looks fine.. =)

I've been using it for WinXP and it works great there as well..
