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.
