Thanks! My PC actually has a serial port so this should be easy. But which
reader devices are supported on Linux? And where should I look for a Linux

If I have cards for two channels/packages, do I have to have two readers or
snap cards in/out?
Also - a complete noob question indeed - how do I buy these cards for
