dell latitude d630 how do I disable the touchpad

I have been researching this for a while and it keeps telling me to go to control panels-> mouse then mess with the touchpad options.  I don't have these options.  How can I disable the touch pad?

What about the F2 Setup options? I've got a D630 in front of me now and it seems to work OK.

F2 at boot - go down to POST Behavior - Select Mouse/Touchpad - Select any option other than Touchpad PS2

Turn on the Dell Latitude D630. Click on the "Start" tab in the left corner of the toolbar located at the bottom of the computer screen.

Select "Control Panel" from the list of options in the drop-down menu, and a new window will appear with a new set of options.

Select "Mouse" from the list of options. The "Mouse Properties" window will appear on screen. Click on the "Device Select" tab in the window to disable the touchpad.

Click "Yes" when prompted to confirm, and the touchpad on your Latitude will be disabled.

Sorry that should read select the Serial Mouse option (the first in the list), the Touchpad will be disabled while an external mouse plugged into the USB will function normally

Thanks for the response, but I don't have that option.
I can get to the mouse control panel option, but there is nothing for device.
Well the manufacture has given these instruction in their user manual.

If you don't have these settings in you control panel, I assume you might not have the software for touch-pad installed in you system Try install the software which might give you these options to disable it.
