does anyone know if this cards driver will work under osx Tiger?
from what i can see it most likely was last officially supported under Panther

digging deeper into the driver file i find:
Quote
This driver was tested under Jaguar 10.2.8 and Panther only. Older versions of OS X are not and will not be supported.

if anyone has any info about it working or not working under osx tiger 10.4 that would be helpful info

here is the macosx Driver (10.2.8+)
found from here:

apparently the driver is not INTEL compatible;
but there is a chance it may work on OSX TIGER on a PPC G4
(many PST cards are not electrically compatible with the G5)

apparently it is rumoured to work fine under windows 7 32bit with the XP driver
but not under 64bit
