Please tell me the truth: can I use non-tablet version of Windows XP with a Pen-Interface?
Can I organize Pen Interface with any kind of drivers, or I must to install the Tablet-PC version of Windows?
And maybe ordinary Windows XP can become a Tablet XP version after a special Magic Drivers installing?
Do you know any kind of Software for activation of the pen-device and touch-screen under non-tablet WINDOWS XP.
Or it's impossible?
Thank you for answers.

Windows XP tablet version is basically Windows XP pro w/ tablet functionality [which is tablet input panel, writing recognition] If you don't want to use that, you don't have to use Windows XP tablet version either.
I myself rarely use those functionality, only use pen as pointer and for photoshoping. It works just fine under Windows XP pro + install Wacom driver (or multitouch driver.)

From the link you provided, there isMultiTouch driver for Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 - ThinkPad X60 Tablet, X61 Tablet, X200 Tabl... 2009-01-08
That's what you looking for. In my opinion, that site has such a good resource, but never be in a good/neat presentation since I also have difficulty finding what I want sometimes. I hope one day, they would try to make it better.

I have try to install an ordinary Windows XP version to my PC.
I have no result of the digitizer driver installation because of the site downloading problems.
Now I have reinstalling the Factory Default settings on my PC, but I will try to install another
Windows System in future.
Thank you for helping.

Well, you can grab driver here http://www.wacom.com/productsupport/select.cfm this is only "pen" driver though.
If you need touch, you can always install multitouch driver above after that.
Have fun with your tablet,

I already did it. It's nice!
Now my Lenovo-X61T works with non-tablet Windows-XP(SP-3, IE-8, Russian Edition).
Drivers for touchscreen and pen was installed by me:
but all of it will work after full Lenovo updates installation only (press ThinkVantage-->Update my system, install all of you can find in that point) .
I bought a RitePen program. It installed instead of Tablet Part of Windows and now I can write pen text more better then it was under Windows_XP_Tablet. This little utility understand my curved russian handwriting almost without errors. Becouse of it I can recomend this simple solution.
Problem is solved. My PC is very good now. Really, Lenovo X61T is the best PC for me today.
Many thanks for good advice.
