Mobits Adam A221Tablet PC - Help !

This is a bit off topic, but...

I bought a Mobits Adam A221 mini-tablet PC on Ebay. My plan was to get Linux working on it, but so far I have been unable to get either the WiFi or the Tablet/Pen interface working.

There seems to be next to no info on these on the web - if you have one and you have had any success could you let me know ?

Under windows the drivers it uses are:
Tablet - Fujitsu touchscreen driver. It is running on COM1
WiFi - Uses PRISM USB drivers.

Any ideas ? If I spend anymore time mucking around with this my wife will kill me !

Did you have any more luck with this tablet.

I've had it for a few months, I got xubuntu running on it, but didn't have much luck with the wifi or the touchscreen.

Trying to put windows back on it has been quite the nightmare for me. Doesn't seem to work too well :(

I have all the drivers that I need for Windows on a CD, but I can't get as far as having the OS run, it seems to die in the middle of copying the files from my CD(tried a couple different ones).

Santos, next time post WHERE you got them to help others in their search.
Below are list of drivers & associated hardware devices. I hope they are correct, I do not trust this manufacturer.
