Keep quickset. Use the latest touchpad driver from Dell's site for your laptop.
You really should reformat and re-install from pure WindowsXP, Dell is nice and all but the bloatware is really meant for regular joe-blow users...
I bought one from PatrickVo, and it works like a charm. To be honest, since it's not hot-swappable, I don't use it a ton, but for long trips on a plane I use it since it draws less power than a DVD (it has my DivX movies on it).
