- - Install 'gsynaptics'
- - Read /usr/share/doc/gsynaptics/README
- - run 'gsynaptics'
- - have fun :-)

Reading /usr/share/doc/xserver-xorg-input-synaptics/README.Debian etc.
might also help! (This is probably a bit outdated for lenny. Recently,
the touchpad is autoloaded with default configuration even in the
absence of touchpad entries in xorg.conf.)
