E1/R2 signalling

We have a e1/r2 card from sangoma. It is a Sangoma a102. I would like to install this card on one of our server. My questions are, Is it like a plug and play hardware? Do I have to compile something for this card?Like device driver,libraries, etc?By the way my OS would be Linux Fedora core4 or SUse 9. Do I have to configured the 30 channels?Are there any tools that i would be needing?Are there any documentation on this. If yes Where Ican I found one. I would be also using asterisk 1.2.7

Please help, Cause I’ll be installing the card on my present company.Thanks
