Description of problem:
My laptop (Toshiba Satellite 1115-S123)'s touchpad no longer functions in the Fedora Core 4 Test 1 anaconda installer. I could easily work around this by pluggin in a basic logitech USB mouse, but a mysterious annoyance nonetheless

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. pop the FC4t1 cd1 in the cdrom
2. reboot, and enter graphical installation
3. try to move the cursor with the touchpad

Actual Results:  Anaconda generates an error saying that there were no pointing devices and asked me if i wanted to continue with graphical or switch to textual install

Expected Results:  The touchpad to work during the install, as it has in the past

Does the touchpad work post install?

What does cat /proc/bus/input/devices show when you've got the system booted.

If you boot the installer with psmouse.proto=imps or psmouse.proto=bare does the
touchpad work
