sorry, for answering so late... but I wanted to point you also to the touchpad-driver I use (which is also in the XF86config...). I use the synaptics-driver from http://mobilix.org/software/synaptics/
the file synaptics-0.11.3.tar.gz. If I am right, you just need to copy the synaptics_drv.o into your /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/input directory.
Don't be irritated, that I configured a second mouse...
The problem, that after starting X the virtual consoles are looking strange, still persists for me. I think we should open a new thread for this: "flickering virtual-console, after X was started"
If you have other problems with this notebook. feel free to mail me firstname.lastname@example.org
