    i would atleast go with W2K, but XP should work fine as long as you can get the pen to work. my everyday desktop is barely more powerful than the 3400 and i run XP, Photoshop, Illustrator, etc. on a daily basis with no problems.

    i searched around some more, and it seems that the W2K pen driver DOES work with XP, you just have to install the driver manually, through the device manager.

    regardless of which OS you choose, 98se, W2K, XP, or even a linux distro... i'm sure you'll love the tablet.

    Here, I made a picture for you:


    On the left is my carputer's LCD (notice how well the non-glare glass is functioning!). On the right is my Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop. I am currently uploading new MP3s to the carputer. I am also using RAdmin software to control my carputer from my Dell while I'm at it. You can see that the Dell sees exactly what is on the carputer's LCD. Notice the mouse position - when I move the mouse cursor on Dell, it also moves on the carputer.

    I can also go the other way around, I can control my dell with a carputer

    Hey, look at me! I'm running Windows XP on my Pentium 133!



    This picture shows my carputer controlling my Dell laptop which is exactly 25 times as powerful.
    This is what you will be doing with your Tablet

    It comes with NT, I have 95, 98 and Win 2000, I just upgraded a pc here at work to 2000. The pc is at least 4 years old (it says:x86 Family 6, 8 stepping, AT/AT Compatible. 133,488 KB Ram) whatever all that means. But I guess its about a 4-500 Mhz. After the upgrade it works really fast.
    I think I'll upgrade to 2000, and I guess I'll have to find the pen driver.
    Can you all tell me (exactly) what hardware I need for remote networking? I figured I might as well find and buy it now. As you know I want the tablet to work with the big pc in the back of the truck, but I want the big pc to communicate with my house pc. (for internet, synch files/mp3's etc.).
    Wouldn't it be better to hardwire the big pc to the docking station (mounted on the dash) and then go wifi to the pc in the house with this: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...geName=MERC_VI

    If I hardwire the truck PC's, what do I use for (inter) communication...the Rad software?

    i recommend ultraVNC because it's fast and free.

    as far as networking the computers together. i would go with wireless all the way around. the most you would need is a few wifi cards and a router/WAP. the least you would need is 3 wifi cards... one for each computer, so they could connect directly to each other in 'ad hoc' mode.

    i don't have much experience with wifi yet. hopefully somebody here can help you with more details. but, i can say that you should go with a good brand, not just the cheapest. places like www.newegg.com and www.pricewatch.com usually have decent prices on brand name components.

    the W2K pen drivers are easy to find. go here http://support.fujitsupc.com/CS/Port...srch=DOWNLOADS select your tablet from the dropdown menus and it will take you to all the drivers.

    I have the "display" PC up front. I have the main PC in the rear. If want to display on the screen what the main pc is doing...to truly work "through" the rear pc...to use the front unit as a display ONLY, then I can't go wireless. If I go wireles then I'm pretty much working "through" the front (display) pc, at only 400Mhz. (not the rear 1.2GHz)
    Am I not correct?
    If I am, then I would need to use the Par Technologies IREZ Capsure (50600) Video Input Card ( http://www.shopping.com/xPO-Par_Tech..._Capsure_50600 )
    This way I am using the front pc as a display only. Am I wrong?
