I have read Dell manual on Dell Latitude D830 and it does not state how to disable the track stick that is in the middle of the keyboards.  I want to keep the touchpad enabled but because the track stick is a nusiance I would like to disable it.

This could possibly be in the BIOS setup, if the option exists for the internal pointing device(s). It could also be a driver feature, but you will have to have the correct drivers installed (Synaptics or Alps, most likely). If the touchpad and pointer stick run on windows generic mouse drivers, you will not have all the features that come with the correct drivers.
