I have done the following :

# The available mouse protocols types that you can set below are:
# Auto BusMouse GlidePoint GlidePointPS/2 IntelliMouse IMPS/2
# Logitech Microsoft MMHitTab MMSeries Mouseman MouseManPlusPS/2
# MouseSystems NetMousePS/2 NetScrollPS/2 OSMouse PS/2 SysMouse
# ThinkingMouse ThinkingMousePS/2 Xqueue
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2" <-----------------------------





Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2" <----------------
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" <---------------
EndSection

.This,however, doesn't seem to work :-(.

If i comment Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2" X crashes.Maybe i need to set * Option "Protocol" "Auto" * ?

you shouldn't need the entry twice. try commenting

# **********************************************************************
# Core Pointer's InputDevice section
# **********************************************************************

Section "InputDevice" <--------------------------------------------

# Identifier and driver

Identifier "Mouse1" <--------------------------------------------
Driver "mouse" <-------------------------------------------------

# On platforms where PnP mouse detection is supported the following
# protocol setting can be used when using a newer PnP mouse:

# Option "Protocol" "Auto"

# The available mouse protocols types that you can set below are:
# Auto BusMouse GlidePoint GlidePointPS/2 IntelliMouse IMPS/2
# Logitech Microsoft MMHitTab MMSeries Mouseman MouseManPlusPS/2
# MouseSystems NetMousePS/2 NetScrollPS/2 OSMouse PS/2 SysMouse
# ThinkingMouse ThinkingMousePS/2 Xqueue
Option "Protocol" "PS/2" <-----------------------------------------------------

so that the only uncommented lines are

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection
