I just got an olpc off ebay!!!! :D

Does anyone know what the rest of the touch pad is for? I understand there was a pen tablet functionality...Can I get in on that?

Software for the pen pads was never released.

Current XO production uses an improved and more reliable keyboard design, which does not include the pen pads.

OLPC uses a pen drive format to boot up the OS using the pen drive.The Pen Tablet portion of the touchpad appears to X as an extended input device which can be in absolute or relative mode, and which reports core events.The state of Pen Tablet support is currently in flux, but there are some sample applications created by Patrick Dubroy that will allow you play with the table
