Unhappy Slackware doesnt like wheels!

Why does my Wheel mouse not work with Slackware 9.1 is it cos it says Microsoft Intellimouse on it??!

Ive gone into XF86Config and i read that your supposed to change

Under "Section InputDevice"

Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

I have 2 sections of the config file that relate to the mouse which one do i edit the main one or the one at the end under server section??

Thankyou in advance for your help with this prob simple question!
