Perhaps the touchpad and the stick can be addressed by different device
names like /dev/input/mouse0 and /dev/input/mouse1. If those devices
exist, find out which one is the stick by typing "cat /dev/input/mouse0"
and moving the stick or touching the touchpad; if nothing happens, try
"cat /dev/input/mouse1". Then, in /etc/X11/xorg.conf you can replace
"/dev/input/mice" with the touchpad device name.
You would if you could but you can't so you won't.
