A driver for the 2860 has been added to Greg Kroah-Hartman's staging
tree. You can obtain this tree, a set of Quilt patches, here:  (If
you need help getting the patchset, email me personally and I'll walk
you though it)

Now there do appear to be several other drivers on the webpage you
mentioned, and I'm not sure if all of those others are supported. Greg
could probably clear that up. But the 2860 support is coming.
