you need ZAxisMapping like so

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
EndSection

that's just my mouse section.. you only need the zaxismapping part...

Am I missing something here?

That's where I had it. After logging off a couple of times it worked. Don't ask me why...
