Touchpad unusable on a compaq presario 900, DSL 0.9.2.


Greetings everybody,
Damn Small Linux seems good given its small size. Well, unfortunately I can't use it. It boots into X-windows but does not let me use the synaptics touchpad properly - only horizontal movement that too at the botton of the screen is permitted so I can't do anything. I can bring up some menu using the right touch pad key but can't select anything on that menu either not even the last item. I am using a compaq presario 900 US laptop. Anybody encountered the same problem and know a fix? I am using DSL version 0.9.2.

Thank you,
regards,
Prasad
