What are those two extra buttons supposed to do? (never used a mouse with more than 3 buttons before)...
If it is for something like moving back or forward in web-page or if you want to use it to launch some commands, try using xev to determine the keyodes for those extra buttons, then modify your ~/.Xmodmap file as required.
