Wacom tablet

I use the below FDI file (to be placed in /etc/hal/fdi/policy) to configure my Wacom Intuos3 digitizer tablet. The basic configuration is handled by HAL, and the below enables the tablet to work better with my dual-monitor workstation. The Ubuntu Wacom page and the man page for the X11 wacom driver were the most useful resources in setting it up.

Specifically, it maps the tablet area to one monitor. Moving to the side of the tablet maps it to another monitor.
