Graphics Tablets - How does a tablet and mouse work together? Is there anything else one should be aware of?

I received a graphics tablet several years ago as a gift, but didn't use it much. I do a lot of artwork on the PC but my tablet is long gone (seems to have disappeared though I still have the driver disc).

"A tablet and mouse can both work together at the same time.

Wacom is the most popular tablet maker that I've seen. I believe their Intuos brand is the most popular product line for them. For $99 you can get a Bamboo Pen & Touch ($69 for Bamboo Pen). I have a Touch and, although I like it, wouldn't recommend it for drawing -- it is more for adding gesture control to supplement a mouse.

The tablet can work without a driver, but you don't get all the features until you install the driver. They supply drivers for the latest OS versions as well."
