configuring five button mouse

im using slack 10.0 and kernel 2.6.6

ive configured my mouse so that all five buttons work(intellimouse explorer)....with the two side buttons working as back and forward...what id like to know is if its possible to map one of the side buttons so that it closes any active window in x..?? (as opposed to moving the mouse and pressing the X button on the top right hand corner of the screen)..
