I solved the problem of wrong working touchpad on my Asus EeePC 1000H with editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf
I write down the solution in Russian on http://mvk-kopilka.blogspot.com/2008/12/asus-eeepc-1000h.html
Summary:
1. install Elantech touchpad driver for Linux http://arjan.opmeer.net/elantech/. "The Elantech touchpad is found amongst others in MSI laptops and the Asus EeePC 9xx and 1xxx"
2. Add to /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "ImPS/2 Logitech Wheel Mouse"
Driver "synaptics"
Option "SendCoreEvents" "true"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mouse0"
Option "Protocol" "auto-dev"
Option "HorizEdgeScroll" "0"
Option "SHMConfig" "on"
EndSection

Section "ServerLayout"
InputDevice "ImPS/2 Logitech Wheel Mouse"
EndSection
3. Install gsynaptics-elantech 
sudo apt-get install gsynaptics-elantech 
4. Enabling SHMConfig with HAL https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynapticsTouchpad#Enabling%20SHMConfig

It works for me.
