Microtouch screen random problem.


I work at the Warhawk Air Museum in Nampa, Idaho. Albertsons donated 5 NCR touch screen computers useing microtouch. I installed Linux (fedora core 3) on one of them and when I touch the the screen and the mouse randomly jumps around and clicks randomly VERY fast. I know the touch screen works because I can use it under the bios menu. Which is very cool :P
But my goal is to set it up as a web kiosk so people can look stuff up on the web. I have no idea what the model number is I can't find it any where. I think it might be a custom job. I was told they used them for training. Here is a picture of it and the rest of the cool stuff that was donated by Albertsons. The touch screen computers are the ones in the back.

I believe you need to install linux drivers and customize your xorg.conf file.
There may be some help here:
