Tablet Help please

I initially posted this on the Hardware forum but got no response... I am hoping to receive some help and encouragement to get Linux working on a Tablet. The actual model is a GoBook sold also by HP as a Tr3000.

I want to install Linux on this keyboardless Tablet pc. Information on the Tablet can be found at the itronix website (look under GoBook (model 300)).
For those not familiar with Tablets this means I need to:
1. Be able to activate and use the pressure sensitive touchscreen (wacom) as:
(a) mouse
(b) virtual keyboard
2. Use both 1a & 1b for installation, boot & login.
3. It would be practicle to use an external usb keyboard for initial installation but operational conditions preclude the use of a physical keyboard in normal use.
4. This means the virtual keyboard has to replace all the functions of a physical keyboard.
5. I could post an image of the virtual keyboard which MS$ use for XP tablt edition.
6. Most tablets also have rotation support for both portrait and landscape operations.
7. The Wacom serial Tablet pen is managed via an Intel(R) 82801CAM LPC Interface Controller.
8. Intel(R) 82801CAM LPC Interface Controller - 248C also provides the hardware for the rotate driver.
9. The mouse device also operates via the Tablet pen.
10. This rugged tablet is equipped with integral wireless lan, usb 2, lan & blue tooth.
11. My primary purpose is using this unit at sea for naviation, logging, interfacing with radiocommunication devices, and for ontrol purposes. I would love to be able to move away from MS$

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

You disabled your email so I'll make this a public posting in response to you reporting this post.

The reply that XavierP made is a generic reply to warn not only you but other members that double posting is not allowed, which is stated in our rules you agreed to when registering. We make these generic replies in such situations so all the replies are consistent with other cross postings and closing of threads.

The reply given is in no way to discourage you to ask questions but rather make you aware of our rules in place. There is no need to cross post the same questions in more than one forum on this site. Pick the most relevant forum and post your questions there. If your unsure, ask a moderator, we all have email enabled to assist.

In most cases some moderators including myself don't even link to the other existing threads members might have made when closing, so XavierP did you a favor to point any members looking at this thread and might have a reply to follow the link, which you should actually appreciate with no hard feelings as everyone gets the same response when they make a booboo and break one of the rules.
