dell latitude touch pad problem

i have FC4 installed on my latitude (1ghz). there is a problem with the touch pad, if i rest my hands on either side of it or touch it wrong the mouse shoots off to either side of the screen. even when i try to use a usb mouse it doesnt over ride the touchpad. i tried to disable it on the bios just to use the usb mouse but since its an older laptop it only gave me the option to just use a serial or ps/2 mouse. is there any way i can go into the terminal and disable it? im still a new user to the linux system so if you could be specific w/ instructions that would be great. thanks!!
