    Using Dell PC
    on
    Win98 / P III @ 300 mhz
    ====================

    Is there a piece of hardware - like a pen tablet or stylus?- that I can use
    instead of a mouse - when using PSP, Photoshopp or Flash that would make
    drawing shapes easier - with more control?

    I'm not certain what this thing would be called.

    If anybody has any suggestions - I would appreciate it.
    Thank you.

    Yes there is something called a pen tablet.
    Wacom is a producer of those.

    They make drawing, coloring etc. easier.

    There are other makes as well.

    I am using an earlier version, original under Win98se, now XP.

    N.B. They have other sizes.

    It's called a "graphics tablet". Wacom is currently the major producer.
    Downside is that they don't support any version of Windows earlier than
    98SE with their USB products--if you have 98SE then you're set, otherwise
    you'll have to upgrade to that from 98 non-SE.

    Probably more than you can afford, but the 21" Cintiq is exceedingly nice,
    downside is that it needs XP or later.
