It is working flawlessly. The calibration stays even when I power off the unit and power it back on. I used this egalax page to get me an idea of what to do. I did as he did and copied the /usr/share/hal/fdi/50-eGalax.fdi file and put it in /etc/hal/fdi/policy.
I then looked at /etc/evtouch/config for the parameters of my calibration (I had previously successfully calibrated my touchscreen.) I used those values (well just the MINX,MINY,MAXX,MAXY) in the /etc/hal/fdi/policy/50-eGalax.fdi.
This was a tough task to accomplish and I thought I was going to have to settle on having to reboot when I lost power to the screen. I am glad I found that link. I hope others find it useful as well.
