Can you use the extra buttons on a Microsoft mouse?

I have a Microsoft Explorer mouse (an excellent mouse!) and you could customize what the two buttons on the side do (normalled set to forward/back for browser). Does anyone know if there is a program to do the same thing?
Or if you can do it for logitech's equivalent?
