I had read that it was possible.  I'd like to do so, as my ps/2 mouse 
sit's on a 'floating' mousepad and it would be difficult to replace it 
with my usb tablet/mouse/stylus.

Mandrake dist, but I'll give it a spin.

I want to make sure I understand this statement.  My tablet has a place 
to store the stylus at the top of the tablet.  When you say remove the 
stylus from the tablet, you mean don't have it on the tablet drawing

I didn't have to buy my radio from a specific company to listen
