This is a common question that has been asked and answered 100 times on the forums.

You have to edit your xorg.conf file.

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

The ZAxisMapping option activates the scroll wheel.

I would let 'xorgsetup' set it up for you. So, run that as root when not running X.
