Hi Doug, I don't have access to internet at my school and internet is
really expensive here on the island.  That's why i joined the ubuntu-users
mailing list because i can't go to ubuntu forums and ask questions or do
research on the problems I encounter.  I can't receive any attachments and
can't check any links someone post because on my campus we only have
access to email thats on an intranet system and not internet.

Paul is it possible for you to do a copy and paste of the contents of that
link you sent because I am not allowed to access it when I click on the
link.  Thanks in advance.  Trust me I wish i had internet access and could
google, I would have solved my bluetooth issue and found out a way to
disable the trackpad while I am typing.

Don't you use Google? Try:

Linux: disable trackpad while typing
