Zoinks! No, i've heard bad things about the All-in-wonder (under Linux).
As long as you have a spare PCI slot though many people seem to suggest
the Hauppauge line of TV cards ( They use the bttv chipset
which displays TV video with little to no CPU overhead. Its not a 2D video
card though, just an add-on but it seems to be well supported. I've been
thinking about picking one up. Last I checked, I think they're about $100
or so at CompUSA. 

Check out the Video-4-Linux webpage at:

If you get one, let me know how it is! Did I mention some have built-in
Radio tuners too! :)
