Here is the Linux Wacom project http://linuxwacom.sourceforge.net/ which should help.

I have a Graphire, which took me a long time to get working, but it's doable. Pay special attention to your X server log onces you got the X module for the tablet in place, loaded the kernel module and changed your X server config file.
