I own a Wacom Bamboo tablet... so far I get it to work by looking at the linux wacom project http://linuxwacom.sourceforge.net/
and a little bit of trail and error.
Fedora 8 with kenrel 18.104.22.168-64 (see uname -a output below)
Linux cylxdv01 22.214.171.124-64.fc8 #1 SMP Sat Mar 29 09:54:46 EDT 2008 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux
Wacom Bamboo model CTF-430/S a USB connection (see more /proc/bus/usb/devices):-

for drivers :-
step 1. I downloaded linuxwacom-0.7.9-9.tar.bz2 build it to get wacom.ko
step 2. replace the wacom.ko in /lib/modules/126.96.36.199-64.fc8/kernel/drivers/input/tablet
step 3. cd to prebuilt in the linuxwacom-0.7.9-9 and do a install
step 4. modprobe -v wacom
The tablet works !! but when I restart the machine again I need to do modprobe before the tablet will work.
1. How can I get the tablet to work on startup without doing mobprobe, how can I have the wacom.ko dirver loaded everytime the machine start?
2. Currently my tablet work as a mouse but some thread said I can make the tablet work better... something like get the erase button to work...etc.. How can I do that and please explain to me a little more.
3. Do you think I should add this tablet to the HCL in this forum, so other linux fans will able to benefit from it or shall I get it to work more before I added into it?
