I am constructing a small robot based on an embedded board running Linux.

I am looking for a USB thermometer device, which will work with the 2.6 kernel. So far I found a bunch of devices, but it's not clear whether they have Linux drivers or not (no description).

Any suggestions?

There is a Ubuntuforums thread for Linux Compatible Thermometers.
There is another even older one at LinuxQuestions

Here is a reference to Brando USB Thermometer.
Article reference for the same (do read this through).
A derkeiler 2.6 Kernel patch thread from there.
And at the end a recent posting reference: TEMPer Temperature Sensor Linux Driver.
