I've been looking all over for a while trying to find a reasonably priced small touchscreen for use with the Raspberry Pi without  much luck.  Does anyone know of one that should be compatible with the Pi (maybe with Debian)?

The wiki page mentions a Nokia N8 screen (T1021A)..  http://elinux.org/RaspberryPiBoard  but looking at it there's no help getting it setup as yet..

I'm looking more for a complete touch-enabled screen that I can strap a Pi to.  A 5 or 7 inch screen would be fine.  Trouble I'm having is that the screens often cost as much as a full device with a screen would cost, which isn't very helpful.

I have been looking around myself but haven't had much luck. It would be ideal if someone would developing something like the LCD LVDS add-on for the Beagleboard http://bb-lvds.blogspot.com/

There are actually several threads discussing small/portable (touch) screens floating around.  I'm going to close this one, but please join in any of the others out there that can found using the (much improved!) forum search feature :)
