Look at the xset(1) man page.  I use "xset m 1 4" to set it to a
more reasonable speed.

I was amazed at how sensative the trackpad was(your wrist can trigger it
even you it just passes over...).  You probably want to disable the
tap-to-click feature of the trackpad.  I use
/sbin/trackpad notap
from the powerpc-utils package in a simple startup script which I made.
