I have a microsoft intellimouse and i cant get it to fully work under fedora linux.
for starters i cant find any linux drivers for it (for obvious reasons)

the problem is that the side back and forward buttons dont seem to even register, so i cant use them to navigate forward and backward in the file browser or firfox, which is annoying.

secondally the middle mouse scroll wheel isnt fully working. it can scroll up and down websites fine, and if i use it to click on a link it will open up a new tab just as it should, however... when i use the middle mouse button and click on a blank area on a web page it opens up www.wiki.org and searches for a random word - it can be hillarious some times - but its still quite annoying.

any ideas on getting my mouse working?
