Turning off tapping on touchpad

Hi there. I'm having problems trying to turn off my touchpad's tapping feature. I've tried to install tpconfig but apparently it's unable to detect my touchpad. I do realize that I cannot run from KDE..anyway I did the config, make, make install and everything..haven't managed to get it to stop the tapping feature on my touchpad. I am running Mandriva Free 2006. The tpconfig folder is in my local usr folder..Is there anywhere specific that I should put it. I did notice that I didn't have the command tpconfig available to run in my usr/bin and from the startup script, it points to there. Am I able to just copy and paste tpconfig into that folder and have it working? Thanks..

There's no need to install any packages. Xorg allows you to do this:
