Works for me with the stock Fedora kernels on my PowerBook. There's no
need for fiddling around with /etc/modprobe.conf. Is your touchpad
working without synaptics, or more specifically is the appletouch module
getting loaded?

Do you have chosen the right device? Here are the relevant portions of
my /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Section "ServerLayout"
	...
	InputDevice	"Mouse0"
	InputDevice	"Synaptics Touchpad"
	...
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier	"Mouse0"
	Driver		"mouse"
	Option		"CorePointer"
	Option		"Device"		"/dev/input/mice"
	Option		"Protocol"		"IMPS/2"
	Option		"ZAxisMapping"		"4 5"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier	"Synaptics Touchpad"
	Driver		"synaptics"
	Option		"SendCoreEvents"	"true"
	Option		"Device"		"/dev/input/mice"
	Option		"Protocol"		"auto-dev"
	...
EndSection

HTH,
