well, in the end it was a mix of details:
 * installed kernel from Array.org/ubuntu (also default in Ubuntu-Eee)
 * installed gsynaptics-elantech
 * created a file /etc/modprobe.d/psmouse and added:
options psmouse elantech=1
 * edited Xorg.conf to look like this:
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Synaptics Touchpad"
        Driver          "synaptics"
        Option          "SendCoreEvents"        "true"
#       Option          "Device"                "/dev/psaux"
        Option          "Device"                "/dev/input/mouse0"
#       Option          "Protocol"              "alps"
        Option          "Protocol"              "auto-dev"
        Option          "HorizEdgeScroll"       "0"
        Option          "SHMConfig"             "on"
#       Option          "TouchpadOff"           "1"

I left commented the lines I had and tried before, unsuccessfully

AND...all the documented info (the one that actually helped me solve
the "issue"):
 * http://wiki.eeeuser.com/getting_ubuntu_8.04_to_work_perfectly

One last detail is that I had to enable both the default ubuntu Mouse
preferences and the Gsynaptics-elantech ones.

/me is now happy

Thanks ALL of you guys who made keep going googling and reading,
