+               <H1>XILINX JTAG tools on Linux without proprietary kernel modules</H1>
+               <H2>About</H2>
+               <P>
+               When using <a href="http://www.xilinx.com">XILINX</a> JTAG software like Impact, Chipscope and XMD
+               on Linux, the proprietary kernel <i>windrvr</i> module from <a href="http://www.jungo.com">Jungo</a>
+               is needed to access the parallel- or usb-cable.
+               As this module does not work with current linux kernel versions (&gt; 2.6.18) a library was developed,
+               which emulates the module in userspace and allows the tools to access the JTAG cable without the need
+               for a proprietary kernel module.
+               </P>
+               <P>
+               The library uses <a href="http://libusb.sourceforge.net/">libusb</a> to access USB devices and the
+               <a href="http://www.linuxfocus.org/common/src/article205/ppdev.html">ppdev</a> interface to communicate
+               with parallel cables. The parallel part currently only supports Parallel Cable III mode (and PCIV in
+               PCIII compatibility mode) as the faster PCIV modes use another kernel module which is not emulated by
+               this library. So you are limited to a 200kHz JTAG clock when using Parallel Cable IV with this software.
+               The USB cable is supported at full speed.
+               </P>
+               <P>
+               The library is called <i>libusb-driver</i> as it was developed to support the USB cable, but later
+               extended to also support parallel cables.
