You'll most likely have to install the driver for the synaptic touchpad:

After you install the synaptic driver...edit your XF86Config to match this:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "synaptics"
Option "Protocol" "auto-dev"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "MaxSpeed" "0.18"
Option "MinSpeed" "0.02"
Option "BottomEdge" "4000"
Option "SHMConfig" "on"
# Option "Repeater" "/dev/ps2mouse"
Option "LeftEdge" "1900"
Option "FingerLow" "25"
Option "MaxTapTime" "180"
Option "MaxTapMove" "220"
Option "FingerHigh" "30"
Option "VertScrollDelta" "100"
Option "TopEdge" "1900"
Option "RightEdge" "5400"
Option "AccelFactor" "0.0010"
EndSection
 
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse2"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection
 
and in the 
 
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "layout1"
InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Mouse2" "SendCoreEvents"
Screen "screen1"
EndSection

This worked for other Mandrake users who experienced problems with their synaptic touchpad. This will also allow you to have a USB mouse that can operate simultaneously with your touchpad.
