David,
Where are you up to? 
Have you got the kernel module compiled and loaded?
If so then the diotest thing shouldn't be to hard to get going.

I don't have the interface card that you're using but I have
and old 6 port isa card, I may be able to hack the driver to
get my card going.

btw do you realize that you have an old driver... there is one
that is two versions later on the ftp site quoted in the README.
You will definitely need it if you run a 2.4 kernel.

None of the modules compiles for me today. I'll have a closer look 
when some spare time comes along.
