Doubt full.

However, that USB wacom is worth more (at least on ebay) than an
equivelent serial one anyway, so maybe sell it and buy a serial one?

How large, BTW?

I used to have a wacom tablet on my linux machine.  I disconnected it
when I moved May '03, and found that I didn't have desk space any longer
for it.  Another 1.5 past, and I still don't have desk space to hook it
to my Octane.  ARgh.
