Bind keystroke to mouse button

I have an MS Intellimouse with 7 buttons.

I am using Red Hat 9.

I am using X11R4.3.0.

I have the mouse configured correctly to use its wheel to scroll.

What I need to do is bind keystrokes to the two side buttons to control the browser "Forward" and "Back" behavior.

How do I bind a keystroke to a mouse button event?

cant help with binding the buttons, but if you go to opera's web site and dload opera for linux you can hold a button and move the mouse left or right for back and forward browsing
