Bottom of the TC states Fedora 10 - I will look at the config *again*.  I went through
DMESG on the TC and F10 is in all the OS names.

I was curious so I hooked up a touch screen on the server - low and behold cat
/dev/ttyS0 responds on the TC when I drag across the touchscreen on the server.  Only
the touch portion ( serial port ) was hooked up to the server NOT the monitor portion.

Other folks seem to have no trouble with their touchscreens - most of what they say is
'they just work' - go figure.  Is there a way to re-assign the TC serial port to another
tty?  I only have something like 5 TC's and /proc shows something like 50 tty's.
