It was there before I upgraded to Natty. Fingerprint Authentication is an option that is found in About Me Application.

I believe this is what installs the missing option:

sudo apt-get install libpam-fprintd

This is what I get when I install:

metungkp1@metungkp1:~$ sudo apt-get install libpam-fprintd
[sudo] password for metungkp1:

There is no package named libpam-fprintd, only a package libpam-fprint. If that is the package you need the installation command has to be
sudo apt-get install libpam-fprint
