thanks for all the help guys, i'm very cautious.  And i might just leave 
it for now and try to provide all info that i can squeese out of it.  
And let someone else grab the hot coal out of the fire.

Would it work to do this in a virtual machine? Or does virtual box use 
the driver of the host system?

xinput --list

This again say's synaptics.  But it's still not clear to me if this is 
based on the actual hardware, or if this is merely saying that a 
synaptics driver is loaded (just software)

This laptop is a 2011 model. These are now being dumped on the 2nd hand 

  Fujitsu's website isn't the easiest to navigate....

after following the links Andre posted i bumped into thisone:

from the looks of it windows loads 2 drivers side by side?
i'm hunting for pictures of a cracked open S761, to see if this machine 
has 2 physical connections or if it is just one pad, with 2 area's.

please also look at this
then click the serial TAB

is says:
**** Linux Notes:

I hope someone can have a look at this. It doesn't say anything about 
what is working. so i'm not sure this actually enables the scroll 
functionality. hehe.
