Its been two years since the first time ive heard about it.
In "http://students.washington.edu/huseby" theyd said that
the driver will be included in the next linux release with
the XF86 4.0 ? but now i believe the project has been stopped
forever....

I think the project is stopped.

In addition to huseby, I helped another developer get Broadway samples. I
never heard of working drivers by either of them. 

The Broadway isn't very cost effective these days anyway. Most PC's are fast
enough to do mpeg-1 compression on their own without additional hardware. If
the price of the Broadway hasn't dropped from the $500+ it last retailed
for, then there's plenty of cards that can be had for less that will do
mpeg-2.
