Peter

If you go to Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Accessability

there is an On screen keyboard there (at least there is on XP Pro)

Accessibility rather and I am pretty sure its installed by default (thats if you even get the choice - i don't remember being given the option to select/deselect it during an install).

Hi Peter

XP has its own onscreen keyboard.
Goto Start, Programs, accessories, accessibility, On Screen Keyboard.

Cheers

Well, Looks like we know where it is now!

The big test is does it work with a Touch Screen?????

Let us all know as this may be someting worth considering instead of trying to mount a laptop within reach.

Can you give us some details on the screen (size/cost)

I saw one of these last night and it's very impressive. Crystal clear screen. Just like using an Ipaq with the pointer. The guy who bought it wanted to be able to see where he is going while the copilot navigates on the laptop.
