Are you talking about
1. an icon in the panel;
2. "Menu -> Kcontrol -> hardware -> touchpad" configuration system?
At least in my laptop (Kubuntu Dapper), I have the second one and there
I can, among other things, turn off tapping.
IIRC the icon in the panel is meant to turn on/off the touchpad
completely (if it interferes with typing in the keyboard).
