I am really sorry for the new thread and if i am not in the correct section please feel free to close this thread and redirect me to the correct one.

I am new in the dreambox world so my knowlage for the moment is limited. What i am trying to do is configure a linux fedora system for card sharing and i thing i need cardserver.i386 software and i have a couple of questions.
1 The new cards that are coming out they come with the reciever and they are locked correct or not ?
2 If not locked would i be able to do it with fedora linux or is better to get a 7020 and connect it with 500 on network for the sharing?
