Yes, ksynaptics adds some more controls to the touchpad, so now I can make it behave better.
but still I cannot understand why after a reboot from SuSE to Windows I loose the tapping in Windows - if I power off and then start Windows everything works fine. Does the driver modify the device somehow which is not reset during the reboot??? Or does it modify some hidden BIOS entry (there is nothing to be configured by a user though)? I used SuSE 9.0 before and it didn't happen. What can be wrong with 9.2?

There is "ksynaptics - A KDE configuration module for the synaptics touchpad"
available in SUSE 9.2. It is available within Control Center under
Peripherals as Touch Pad.

Hope your laptop has the Synaptics Touchpad. Also works with some ALPS
Touchpads too.
