Inspiron 8500 Keyboard Joystick: Linux?

Hey there. I just dropped Fedora C2 on my Dell Inspiron 8500, which has one of those keyboard joystick problems characteristic of that PC, that makes the mouse cursor drift all over the bloody screen.

Does anyone know how to disable this joystick in Linux? It was easy enough in windows, since Dell supplies the drivers, I have no idea how to do this through FC2
