Default TouchPad problem on my Thinkpad R61i


I'm running a FreeBSD 7 with Xfce4 on my Lenovo (IBM) ThinkPad R61i and I have a problem setting up my TouchPad.

I installed Synaptics drivers from my ports tree and it doesnt seem to be working. There seems to be a problem with recognizing my TouchPad.

So, here are some of the outputs, logs, config file editing, etc...

dmesg | grep psm0

psm0: <PS/2 Mouse> irq 12 on atkbdc0
psm0: [ITHREAD]
psm0: model Generic PS/2 mouse, device ID 0

/etc/X11/xorg.conf file ->

/var/log/Xorg.0.log ->

/etc/rc.conf ->

Added: "moused_enable="NO"" ( without these double qotation marks )

/boot/loader.conf ->

Added: "hw.psm.synaptics_support=1" ( without quotation marks )

(EE) Synaptics_Touchpad Found no Synaptics, found Mouse model 0 instead
(EE) Synaptics_Touchpad no synaptics touchpad detected and no repeater device
(EE) Synaptics_Touchpad Unable to query/initialize Synaptics hardware.
(EE) PreInit failed for input device "Synaptics_Touchpad"

This is a part of my Xorg.0.log and i think this is the main problem. I found on an Gentoo forum that there might be a problem with my touchpad as it says here:

3. Touchpad issues: seems that some later-model 61s are shipping with an ALPS pad, rather than the tried-and-true Synaptics. Users are having to resort to all kinds of hackery to get the useful features out of their pad.
So, what am i doing wrong?

Thank you in advance.
