Yes, that was my original complaint, too.  Though, by now, I'd forgotten
which package it was that lacking that crucial info, having gone through
about three different things related to controlling the touchpad.

An example xorg.conf file, notice my ### comments:

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "Default Layout"
	Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
	InputDevice    "Synaptics Touchpad"
### above line had to be added to enable controlling the touchpad
EndSection

Section "Files"
	ModulePath   "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia"
	ModulePath   "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
	Option	    "AIGLX" "on"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
# keyboard added by rhpxl
	Identifier  "Keyboard0"
	Driver      "kbd"
	Option	    "XkbModel" "pc105"
	Option	    "XkbLayout" "us"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
### This section was added to control the touchpad
### see http://satyajitranjeev.wordpress.com/2008/05/16/fedora-9-and-touchpads/

	Driver      "synaptics"
	Option      "SendCoreEvents"
	Option      "Protocol" "auto-dev"
	Option "SHMConfig" "true"
### the above option for letting SHMConfig play with settings
	Option "TapButton1" "0"
