yum list xorg-x11-drv-synaptics reveals that it was installed all along. It didn't work until I copied a previous xorg.conf file to /etc/X11 and added in the InputDevice section (among other things)...

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier  "Synaptics"
    Driver      "synaptics"
    Option      "SHMConfig" "on"
EndSection

Now I can do...

synclient TouchpadOff=2
(diabling mouse taps)

as we are moving away from using an X11 config the best option is to use the hal fdi, like i said try my file i posted remove the X11 and re-boot
