I am in the process of building my system, and I am using the same touchpad you have a link for. The one for the compaq armada. all you realy have to do is figure out the pin outputs for it and connect it to an ps/2 port and it works without a problem. The reason I got this touchpad is because the plastic molding around the touchpad is just like the plastic molding in my car. I plan to mount it in my console for that stock look

Of course, rather than try to destroy an IBM laptop, I figured, this would be an easier install: Trackpoint

Sorry about the revival of such an old thread but i was wondering if it would be worth me getting my hands on a trackpad from a bettered notebook as i had aspirations of setting one into a nice surround on the dash
how do you go about wiring the thing up, does it essentially have the same wiring as a PS2 mouse for X/Y co-ordinates and 2 mouse clicks?

usually yes, the wiring is the same as a ps2 mouse, i've hooked up two, however i know some people who have messed witha couple and could not get them to work....dont know if they were doing something wrong
