Microtouch serial screen driver is not working on RedHat 9

OK heres the problem.

I am setting up a old Emachine (500 Mhz w/ 128 MB RAM) with a LAMP set up on RedHat 9 so I can resume learning PHP. I have a keyboard but no mouse to hook to it. I do have a MicroTouch (3m) 15" CRT monitor that has been kicking around my closet for a couple years. I downloaded the RH9 RPM driver from 3m and installed it on my machine. It might be working. Sometimes if I touch the screen the pointer will jump to some non-relavent position. I thought this would be a calibration issue so I opened the TWCalib utility. The first time it opened but at that point the screen would not respond. After restarting the pointer sometimes moves but is erratic. Now when I run TWCalib it says the device could not be opened. I uninstalled and reinstalled per the directions and still have the same problems. I have messed with the Mouse pointer utilities and selected various manufacturers some work others don't but nothing says 3m or Microtouch on it.

Thank you for the help.

In addition this touchscreen has a serial connection. Also a new development. THe machine will freeze if you touch the screen at logon. no keyboard response.
