Re: how can I get my laptop mousepad...uninstall it

> How do I uninstall my mouse touchpad in my laptop.

You can't "uninstall" it. The driver IS gpm or a part of Xfree.
So as long as you run neither gpm nor Xfree your mouse is kind of
uninstalled. (the ps2 port is still installed though.)

Get Debian woody CDs. ;)

No, i was referring to woody. I don't remember if there was anything
similar on potato...
The only potato machine i've been using the last two years is a server
that has neither a mouse nor a screen, nor an x-server...

Make sure that the kernel you are using includes support for ps/2 (check
dmesg output); the correct driver for the mouse most probably is PS2.
Don't use gpm.
