configuring synaptics

I've got an HP ZE4805US laptop with a synaptic touchpad that includes a scrollerbar functionality. I tried installing synaptics, but the only ability it gives me is tap-to-click.

does anyone know how I can configure my touchpad to scroll? (if it helps, i've got a LiveCD in which it is auto-detected)

Re: configuring synaptics

Is it safe to assume you've already read everything here? If so, download and extract the source code, and read the INSTALL and README files - loads of info there.

iphitus - in case you don't already know, since release 0.14 there are a load of new parameters to play with - edge motion, circular scrolling, coasting, etc. I've just started looking at them myself - my current config is:

Section "Input Device"
        Identifier  "Synaptics Mouse"
        Driver      "synaptics"
        Option      "Device"              "/dev/psaux"
        Option      "Protocol"            "auto-dev"
        Option      "LeftEdge"            "1700"
        Option      "RightEdge"           "5300"
        Option      "TopEdge"             "1700"
        Option      "BottomEdge"          "4200"
        Option      "FingerLow"           "25"
        Option      "FingerHigh"          "30"
        Option      "MaxTapTime"          "180"
        Option      "MaxTapMove"          "220"
        Option      "MaxDoubleTapTime"    "360"
        Option      "FastTaps"            "on"
