Details:

My question is a very simple one, I've been looking around in the setting for quiet sometime now but have yet to find a way to disable my laptop's annoying track pad. If anyone could help me with this it would be much appreciated as I've had to re-type this post three times now thanks to my thumbs rubbing up against the track pad.

Needed Info:

Back Track 5 R1
KDE
Running off Live CD
HP Probook 4530s



ANY HELP WOULD BE EXTREMELY APPRECIATED!!!
