Elo Touchscreen Calibration

Thought I'd crossport this, as I just realized it's not actually a hardware problem I'm having. I can get the touchscreen working, just can't get the thing calibrated:

I'm trying to find a way to calibrate an ELO touchscreen on an Ubuntu box with KDE and xorg. I've tried the calibration utility for DOS that ELO provides, but, I can't find a working driver in DOS for the Chips & Technology 69030 card this embedded box has. So, I can calibrate to all kinds of text and EGA modes, but none of the VESA modes come up.

Is there a calibration that works natively in X? I've searched and can't seem to come up with anything. The touchscreen is serial, not USB, FYI.

Thanks in advance,

I wanted to mention that I solved this myself by using tkXinput. I had it but couldn't figure out how to use it. The package installed a program in /usr/bin called calibrate. The documentation wasn't very clear as to where that was or how to run it, though.
