I have got something like:

with lsusb it shows as:
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
Bus 001 Device 092: ID 099a:a002 Zippy Technology Corp. 
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I added Input section for it:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "mousepad"
        MatchProduct "Mouse Pad"
        Option "Emulate3Buttons" "on"
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

And now everything works fine except two things:
1. Cannot disable tapping. I tried to use "synaptic" driver for this
device, but got only something like "cannot determine protocol". 
2. How can I tune acceleration?
