The thread I posted recently describes my difficulties getting the pen working in Windows 98 on an ST2300. The problem appears to be in Pen Services or the pen driver, leading to a consistent "fatal exception 0E ... at 015F:BFF89742..." after handwriting a couple of dozen characters or so.
It appears that, given the lack of support from Fujitsu for these older pen tablets, I will not be able to get this software to function properly.
Once I got the Windows configuration working I intended to install Linux. This will be my first attempt to work with that OS, so I expect to spend a lot of time learning and tinkering. However...
Will I be wasting my time on this hardware? Will I reach the same sort of impasse, with something that doesn't work and no fix available?
Those of you who have put Linux on your ST500, 1000, 1200, 2300, LT, Point, etc... Were you completely successful? Do you have reliable pen-based mouse emulation, software keyboard, and handwriting recognition?
Or should I just save myself the frustration and dump this thing?
