Disable selecting with trackpad?


I have a Powerbook 12" 1.5GHZ. I am using XFCE as my window manager. I am running kernel with Debian Squeeze.

Is there any way to prevent the trackpad from being used to click? When I move my mouse across the screen with the trackpad it frequently clicks on things and selects as I drag. My trackpad is worn out, so using a lot of pressure doesn't work very well.

I have set Drag and Drop Threshold and Double Click Time and Distance to maximum in Settings > Mouse > Behavior. I have also tried changing Feedback and Threshold for both Configure and appletouch under Settings > Mouse > Devices.

I turned this "feature" off under Mac OS X. Is there an equivalent (GUI or CLI) under Debian?
