Laptops that use the Synaptics Touchpad that may be missing the tap function when used with FC2, or any distro (possibly!) that is using the 2.6 kernel, as I found this fix at the Mandrake forum for Mdk 10 Comm.
If your tap function is not working, add the following to you GRUB's kernel line:
BTW, you can also pass this to the kernel during FC2's installation by using this command at the prompt:
This will give normal tap function during the installation of FC2. Be sure to add this kernel command to GRUB when the time comes during FC2's installation.
Lots of luck...
I have been using this since FC2-Test2 and it has worked right through to the general release of FC2...
