http://www.iftools.com/ctb.en.html is an Open Source driver based
on the wxWidgets tool kit.  http://www.wxwidgets.org

"At this time CTB supports RS232 and GPIB (IEEE488) for Linux and 
Windows95/98, NT, Win2k and XP in a transparent way. That means that the 
program code for read and write via RS232 and GPIB is exactly identical for 
Linux and Windows."
