Need accurate info or drivers for MSCAN + MCF51JM

I have to make CAN work on the MCF51JM128. Seems easy enough. I downloaded the Freescale MSCAN Drivers:

 

    http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/download/license.jsp?colCode=MSCAN_MCF51JM&location=null&fasp=1&sr=0

 

I opened the /samples/JM128 sample.mcp, and... got a boatload of errors. That's because it was created before "Device Initialization" existed? But the consequence is that everything I find is outdated.

 

The MCF51JM datasheet isn't much help either, in other words, it is VERY HARD to find accurate information and code.

 

In a couple of responses TomE said that people used outdated code and that is wasn't worth their trouble making USB-CAN applications "because there was much better code out there". But I don't find any code. Neither does TomE point to the resources he refers to.

 

So this is a desperate last effort. Is there something that is obvious to everybody I have missed? I certainly hope so. Thanks!
