    i had the same problem. instead of hooking it into a USB, i used the little PS/2 adapter and then got into a command line and typed: xorgconfig

    that brought up all the X config stuff. then where it asks you to choose you mouse, i picked number 7. which should be along the lines of (bad memory tonite) IMPS/2 or something to that effect. you should see it once you are in there. sorry i'm not more clear on that.

    after that i went: cd /etc/X11 then: vi xorg.conf

    and added to the input device section:

    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    Option "Buttons" "5"

    and everything seemed to work out pretty good.

    edit: corrected an error pointed out by kern
