Touchscreen not working

Specs: Microsoft Windows For Pen Computing 1.0, i486DX2 50mhz 12MB RAM
I have an Epson EHT-400C Handheld Computer (according to the back but I just call the stupid thing a Tablet). I think that this is a very neat machine and would like to get it working.

However, after installing MS-DOS 6.22, Windows 3.11 Windows For Workgroups, and then the Windows for Pen Computing 1.0 add-on, I can't get the pen to work. The pen that this tablet has is really just a pen shaped piece of plastic. I look all over the place for drivers and really can't find any. I am tired of navigating Windows using a keyboard only when I actually want to use the machine as it's design intends... as a tablet PC.

I know for a fact that everything

Do I even need drivers? Anyway if anyone knows how to get this thing working, has drivers, and such things like that, I would appreciate the help!

NOTE: I have NOTHING but the computer itself, no documentation or any disks for it (doesn't have a disk drive just a PCMCIA 170MB hard drive)

If the tablet doesn't work with the stylus, it may need a special stylus. I have a HP TC1100 with a special stylus that is needed for using the touch capabilities. Unless the computer has a NIC, Windows for Workgroups is unneeded. An install of Windows 3.1 instead of WFW will free up some hard drive space.

Hope this helps

No this doesn't help, the tablet isn't that type of tablet. The special stylus you are talking about is an electromagnetic stylus. This type of tablet is just a standard touch sensitive one that you can use really any piece of plastic. I have the touchscreen working in DOS apps (only as a mouse) but no handwriting recognition. And as for Windows for Workgroups, I have the original disks in box and everything, I just install disks 1-6 and it omits the networking portion. Essentially making it a Windows 3.11 install and not Windows 3.11 Windows For Workgroups install.

I also don't have Windows 3.1 by itself. I'm not too worried about hard disk space anyway because I have an iomega Clik drive I use with it. My problem I believe is driver related. Epson has NOTHING on this thing.
