Just guessing here, since I don't own a tablet PC (lucky you!), but
I'm guessing that you need to "sudo apt-get install xrandr" and edit
the Device section of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to include: Option 
        "RandRRotation" "on"

That might help with the screen rotation part.  But, like I said, I'm
just guessing.  As for the pen, hopefully someone else has pointers
(pardon the pun).
