Wacom Graphire2
Yesterday I lost some time in attempts to configure my Wacom Graphire2
on reinstalled system with 2.6 kernel.
While it worked fine in console, in xorg it wasn't.
As a last resort I tried to change /dev/input/event0 to /dev/input/event1. It's The Solution.

So I have 2 questions:
1. How system assigns devices to /dev/<something>?
2. How to determine (command/utils/place in the 'cat <something>') which dev-id was assigned to the device?
At least when I used to configure /dev/input/event0 there was no any 'no such device' messages.
