Last week you posted this same thing and your distro was SuSE. Now you've got RedHat.
Next week get Slack, you'll never go back! The learning curve is steeper, but you'll
learn Linux and not RedHat :} For now let's see if we can get rid of that pesky flat mouse :}

Okay, first boot and go into your BIOS again and write down the choices it gives
you about disabling the touchpad, and which one you have set.

Next, post that in here, and the contents of this file ->
/etc/X11/XF86Config-4
