in the file /etc/X11/XF86Config there are the options for the mouse. Need to add or change the file where your mouse settings are to look some thing like this.

more info can be found here

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/psm0"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

We would need more info on what kind of mouse you have. My mouse is an optical mouse but it plugs into the ps/2 mouse port. Here is what my mouse section of the XF86Config-4 file looks like:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

I had to change my Protocol value from auto to IMPS/2 before the mouse wheel would work.
