Yes, I tried it again after your post. Maybe it works only with the 32 bits version of Lucid and not with the 64 bits.
The point is that there is no way to discard the touchpad n the bios. Under Windows 7 wich is sell with the SL410, there is no problem to stop the touchpad permanently. With Karmic, gpointing-device-settings worked fine.
I hope to find a solution with the time.

The trouble of few minutes disabling ThouchPd with Ubuntu 10.4 (64bit) is solving by editing /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf
and comment/remove all except:
Identifier "touchpad catchall"
Option "SHMConfig" "true"
and for enabling/disabling touchpad I use touchfreeze utility, unfortunately, I don't succeed to use special buttons(Fn+F8), if any own do, please, write solution here....

Since my first post on this subject, I installed PCLinuxOS 2010.7 Gnome edition on my Thinkpad. That resolved my problem.
Thank you anyway for your reply that for sure will help other people.
Again, thanks a lot.
