The CentOS install disk IS the rescue CD - try install CD #1 (or the DVD
install images).  Unfortunately if you only downloaded the netinstall
image you may not have the correct media at hand.

Live CD as suggested elsewhere could also be useful for rescue.  May
also want to try a USB mouse.  The synaptics RPM is available from
RPMforge.  See

May also want to have a look at

Laptops do tend to be problematic.  Sorry you're having problems, but
welcome to CentOS.
