I am not using the "inline" Cuecat (I think I remember reading it did
not work with Linux), but the USB version works perfectly.  I just
plugged it in to my FC2 system and it simply worked.

Actually, readerware works just fine under Linux since it is written
entirely in Java.  Actually that is what I use the above Cuecat for,
though admittedly I haven't started my book collection and only have all
the DVDs in so far.
