Where are you searching for Preware at? I don't know of any magical built-in app that installs homebrew software to webOS devices.

Can you make sure that your computer is communicating with the TouchPad properly? Go into WOSQI and go to Tools->Linux Commandline. Type in some commands (like cd, ls, df) and see if they produce the right output.

You should also clear the temporary IPK cache. Empty /media/internal/.developer.

For the record, there's more than one way to install Preware. This page lists them all: Application:Preware - WebOS Internals
