No Button 4 - Logitech Trackball

OS is Red Hat 9.0, Kernel 2.4.20-20.9 (Win4Lin compile)
USB is 2.0

I have a USB logitech trackball with 4 buttons.
The smaller (upper) right-hand button is being mapped the
same as the larger right-hand button.

xev calls them both "button 3"
Below is my XF86Config entry for the mouse.
What modification is needed to "map" all 4 buttons

## entry follows
section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Buttons" "4"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
## and while I'm at it, why not emulate 5 buttons?
