I believe that your model did not have the multitouch trackpad. I bought my early 2008 MacBook Pro because it was the first MBP to have mutitouch, while the MB did not. At the time, only the Macbook Air had multitouch. AFAIK, the trackpad cannot be upgraded to have multitouch. (Correct me if I'm wrong.)
From the [OSX webpage|http://www.apple.com/macosx/refinements/enhancements-refinements.html]:
Multi-Touch gestures in older Mac models.
All Mac notebooks with Multi-Touch trackpads now support three- and four-finger gestures.
So what I believe this means is that if you had a MB with a multitouch trackpad, you only had two finger gestures. 10.6 upgrades you to three & four finger gestures, but you still needed a mutitouch trackpad.
[This knowledgebase article|http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3857] infers that multitouch was introduced to the non-Pro Macbooks in late 2008.
