Where to start. first I am pretty new to linux. I have an acer extensa 4620z that had windows xp on it. I was going to put an ax through it. A friend convinced me to spare the blade of the ax and put linux onthe machine. well, what did I have to lose? we tried for a couple of hours to load kubuntu on. only succeeded in wiping out windows, and never loading anything else. he happened to have a zencafe cd in his car, so he grabbed that. loaded up no problem. but a few hardware issues to resolve.

so, as far as I can tell most things work. my only real issues are:

1. how to turn off the tapping feature on the touchpad. cant take it, drives me crazy.

2. how to get the wireless and bluetooth working.

thanks for any and all help. hope I popped this in the right forum.
