x86config question, please help


i recently reinstalled debian and my wheel isn't working on my mouse. I went to open x86config in /etc/x11/ and there isn't one. there is a XF86Config-4 and this is the part i have a question about

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Driver "mouse" <b>"IMPS/2"</b>
Option "CorePointer"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

the bold is the driver i need and i just typed that in, but haven't saved anything yet, until i get some expert advice. would that fix my wheel if i saved it out as "X86Config"

also on a different note. my sound isn't working either, when i try to run sndconfig i get this error:
<b>You don't seem to be running a kernel with modular sound
enabled. (soundcore.o was not found in the module search path).
To use sndconfig, you must be running a kernel with modular
sound, such as the kernel images shipped with Debian Linux or
a 2.2 or greater kernel. </b>

i am running sid (recently dist updated)

any ideas anyone??

No. Your configuration file is really XF86Config-4 not XF86Config. Most wheel mouses also have 3 buttons so you can delete the emulate3button line.
