Default settings for a mouse in Fedora Core 2

I screwed up my mouse settings trying to get the side buttons to work (Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer). I've got them working but now my mouse wheel doesn't work. I stupidly didn't back up my original xorg.conf file so I can't remember the setting that should be there. After a fresh install the mouse wheel worked, it was just the side buttons that didn't, so I was wondering what a basic mouse setup created during install would be.

Here is an extract from xorg.conf

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Buttons" "7"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"

I'm not desperately bothered about the side buttons, but lack of a working wheel is really annoying. I've tried xev, it recognises every button except for wheel scrolling.

You could always try running mouseconfig again?

default fedora setup

this is the default setup,

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"

I'm trying to get my side buttons working at the moment.
