Fujitsu Input driver

I noticed that recent xorg distributions include a
driver for the Fujitsu touchscreen for their line of
notebooks under "fpit".
I've been searching for compatibility for my
touchscreen (passive) in Linux. I have a Panasonic
CF-18 tablet notebook. According to the hardware
specs, it uses Touch Panel technology from Fujitsu
Takamisawa. In the OEM windows XP, it seems that
there is a single driver that controls both the
and the touchpad through one internal ps/2 port
instead of a serial port.
I'd like to get this hardware working under linux, and
I've been searching the Internet, but since my
hardware is somewhat rare, there's been no useful
help. I use SUSE Linux 10, dual booting with the OEM
windows software. My technical experience is limited,
so I can't actually write code - I can barely write
HTML. I would still like to help, and if there's any
hardware or software information I can provide through
either the existing windows XP configuration, or
linux, then I'd like to offer it.
So far, linux can use the touchpad alone with a
generic ps2 mouse driver. I use the tablet for
engineering purposes, and prefer linux for its
security and its open software alternatives, and
enabling the touchscreen would be really convenient.
