Talking Touchpad mouse - tapping and scrooling

I have a laptop with a touchpad mouse and I almost got crazy trying to install the driver and get everything working. This is how to get your touchpad working smooth:

1) I got the latest driver in here:
2) Follow the INSTALL instructions
3) When altering the XFree file, REPLACE the input module regarding the mouse installed for the new input of the INSTALL file. I was trying add another one with that input module, so my XFree didnt start anymore. This means you will have only ONE input module regarding to mouse stuff, got it?
4) If you want to customize your tapping, scrooling configuration, you can download some softwares called "qsynaptics", where you have full control of your mouse configuration.

Good Luck.
