Gene, I think if you look at System -> Hardware -> Mouse in F11, there
is a setting to disable the touchpad when typing.  If you don't see
that, or if you use KDE and it doesn't offer that option, check out
syndaemon, which is the utility that accomplishes that.  It's part of
the synaptics driver package.
