Ubuntu Jaunty runs greats on my eee pc 900 (well haven't tested/or really care for the webcam) except the touchpad.

Well, the touchpad works, but not the mutlitouch part of it.

I can't drag windows, highlight text, ...

Does anyone know how to get it working?

Read the section "Input Configuration with HAL". The touchpad is configured in one of the hal fdi files. Either under /etc/hal/fdi/policy/ or /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy

Also check that the touchpad device is being recognised. Check the output of 'lshal'.
