You must recompile the kernel. It isn't bad at all using the instructions in the software users manual. The only thing I had to do was download "make" on my Fedora 16 machine to make 3.81-19 ... from an older distro(Fedora 14?) by removing my current rpm and installing the older one but it worked.
Also I'm using a different image on the sdcard. 2.6.24 from the September image below the one I had on the ftp site.
I went in and enabled cdc_adm (it is listed as a modem driver) and followed the module instructions.
I just load it in /etc/rc.local with instmod
And now I can get to the Arduino (tested) and I'm assuming the Micro Maestro (shows up as /dev/ttyACM*, but not tested yet).
