When I plug in my Intuos, FreeBSD detects it as a uhid device.  As long 
as you configure X to use it, it should work fine.  I'm not sure if the 
pressure sensitivity will work though. I do not recall how to set it up 
in Xorg, seeing as how I have no use for it currently, so I cannot help 
you there.  The lack of a decent paint program in FreeBSD has negated my 
need for tablet support.
