I use the DVD version, copied to the hard drive (NT partition) with a permanent /home as well; should actually perform much the same as using a USB flash drive. Using a Gateway MX6214 with a Synaptics touchpad, I can't tap or scroll, either, but the hard buttons work fine. I believe one can use Dolphin (on the System Tools menu, up from the Main icon) to modify:
(root) /etc/X11/xorg.conf to fiddle those things around. Hope this helps!
p.s. I'd like to be able to turn "mouse gestures" off; they drive my lady crazy! Anybody know how?
