        Option      "Button" "5"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/psaux"
        Option      "Name" "Microsoft BOM"
        Option      "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
        Option      "Vendor"   "Sysp"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5

    Try the following
    Code:
    Identifier  "Mouse1"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Button" "5"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/mouse"
        Option      "Name" "Microsoft BOM"
        Option      "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
        Option      "Vendor"   "Sysp"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    or if you use the 2.6 kernels do
    Code:
    Identifier  "Mouse1"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Button" "5"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
        Option      "Name" "Microsoft BOM"
        Option      "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
        Option      "Vendor"   "Sysp"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    Seems like your code is missing a closing quotation mark in the ZAxisMapping section.
