I would call the setting "tap to click" as Jari described it.  That's 
what I know the setting as from other touchpad setup dialogs and I think 
it's less confusing than "Enable mouse clicks with touchpad" which makes 
me think of the touchpad's buttons.

If you're looking for more options (more work :) ) once you get the 
basics set up, there are the corner taps which I find useful (ex: 
(synaptics driver xorg config) 'Option LTCornerButton "2"' to tap the 
top left corner for middle click).  But that's just an extra.
