[PD] hid compatibility

I had the idea to use such a tablet on Windows, but it seems
impossible, because the WinXP wants to treat the device like a mouse.
Obviously, we just want position data from it in Pure Data, but we
want the OS to ignore the data and use the regular mouse.
Am I missing something? Is this possible on Win?
Alternately, I do have an old PIII laptop with Debian installed, and
it seems that PD-extended is running on there fine. Would I have
better luck using the tablet this way in Linux? I still don't really
understand how Linux works or deals with devices though, so I'd be a
total newbie at trying to get this running.
