Hey guys, this is my first post/thread in the MacNN forums, so hopefully you guys will be able to help me out.

Anyway, I just got an iBook w/ OSX installed, and the trackpad acceleration is really bugging the hell out of me. With my PC, I always disabled mouse acceleration, but I can't seem to do that with the OSX Mouse Preferences.

Does anyone know of any third party program or hack that will do this for me? It's really getting on my nerves. I know that Overdrive will do it for USB mice, but I want it done on the trackpad, thanks!

Has no one ever had this problem before, or want to change the acceleration?
