OK Bill.  Here is the $64k question (OK, its more like a $100 question).
Have you ever tried a drawing tablet under XFree 4 with the Geforce, and
do you use the Xfree provided driver, or the nvidea provided driver?

Under XFree 3, binary only drivers and drawing tablets had a habit of not
getting along.  I have been unable to establish if the Xfree driver's
performance is adequate, and if not if I'll be able to use my tablet with
the Nvidea driver under xfree 4.  That is why I don't have a Nvidea card
