Just a snip from: http://atrey.karlin.mff.cuni.cz/~vojtech/joystick/

----------- snip ------------------
Currently supported devices are (in hopefully alphabetical order): 

  Microsoft SideWinder 3D Pro 
  Microsoft SideWinder Force Feedback Pro 
  Microsoft SideWinder Force Feedback Wheel 
  Microsoft SideWinder FreeStyle Pro 
  Microsoft SideWinder GamePad 
  Microsoft SideWinder Precision Pro 
  Microsoft SideWinder Precision Pro USB 
----------- snip ------------------

I own a MS SideWinder 3D Pro myself and it works without any problems
under Linux and is fully supported. But don't know about ForceFeedback
of the other sticks.
