Agent-Side checkout is only supported on Windows agent machine

My setup includes TFS 2010, a windows build agent for PC software, and a linux build agent for embedded firmware.  Initially we were using the windows build agent to build our firmware but we are trying to switch over to the linux build agent.
I've read an understand that agent side checkout is only supported on Windows agent machines.

Agent-Side Checkout

Agent-Side checkout is only supported on Windows agent machine (for Linux and Mac agent you may use server-side checkout). It is also required to have Team Explorer installed on agent machine.


Is there any hope of installing "Team Explorer Everywhere for Team Foundation Server" that this would allow for agent-side checkout on the linux build agent?
The ported build configuration is giving the following error: Missing VCS plugins on agent: Team Foundation Server

Any ideas otherwise would be greatly appreciated

Thanks,
Dale

Currently our TFS integration code requires Windows. As a workaround you can use server side checkout.
