I've been using my fix for almost 3 years, since I bought my E520.  What
I'd really like to see is a means to turn it off in the CMOS config.  As
it is, with my fix and also in Windows, the touchpad is on until the
user logs in.  I've always hated those @#$@ things, ever since I first
endured one on an a Toshiba notebook running Windows 95.
