Got this assistance from this list for my Acer, which I thought wouldn't work
the tap with 2.6.xxx kernels. I had to tweak a few things in the <Section
"InputDevice"> to make it work nicely though.
Obviously install synaptics driver.
In in XF86Config:

You will find the post that helped me in the archives I'm certain, but am

The way in which men cling to old institutions after the life has departed out
of them, and out of themselves, reminds me of those monkeys which cling by
their tails -- aye, whose tails contract about the limbs, even the dead
limbs, of the forest, and they hang suspended beyond the hunter's reach long
after they are dead. It is of no use to argue with such men. They have not an
apprehensive intellect, but merely, as it were a prehensile
tail. .............................Henry David Thoreau
