I don't see any synaptics module listed in the file. I had to run 
"system-config-display --reconfig"  after install to get my system to 
work with the synaptics touchpad, but this is using FC4T3 as my starting 
installation. The problem was supposed to be corrected in the FC4 
release. Attached is my xorg.conf file if you want to compare the two. 
You have a better videocard and higher resolution display, but the other 
aspects seem close to mine enough for comparison.
My modules section has this listed below:

Section "Module"
        Load  "dbe"
        Load  "extmod"
        Load  "fbdevhw"
        Load  "glx"
        Load  "record"
        Load  "freetype"
        Load  "type1"
        Load  "synaptics"
        Load  "dri"
EndSection
