    Here is mine mous section (my mouse is M$ Wheel Mouse Optical USB / PS/2)
    Try add the Emulate3Buttons-no line to your config file and see what happens
    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
            Identifier  "Mouse0"
            Driver      "mouse"
            Option      "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
            Option      "Device" "/dev/psaux"
            Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
            Option      "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
    EndSection

    If that doesn't work, what type of mouse do you have? How many buttons (physical)? And does it have a scroll wheel?

    Most of the times I've seen people having troubles with their scroller, its often due to a incorrect mouse driver in their xfree config, so make shure you have the right one.

    Good luck

    Im using a USB packard bell mouse, And im using one of theose laptop pad things. They both work fine exept the scroll on the mouse. Do you reckon I should have two seperate entries for each mouse in my config?

    Since you have "mouse1" listed in your config, and scientica has "mouse0" listed, I would say thats a safe bet!

    Change your protocol to "IMPS/2".

    Do you have the scroll wheel working, too?
