Hi, Here you go -

I installed the fuerte release of the driver from the git -

1) Place the extracted folder in ros workspace

2) cd ethzasl_xsens_driver-fuerte_released

3) rosmake xsens_driver

4) cd xsens_driver/nodes

5) ./ [commands] [opts] (read the Usage instructions on the ros wiki page of the driver for the arguments)

I hope this will help - Good Luck!

I have not used it but you may have to add the user to the dialout group so that the node can communicate with the device and also have to change to usb port permissions.
