mouse wheel like right button???

I wanted to set up a mouse wheel to work. I taught that I should do this:
1) in my XF86Config I should add under Section "Pointer"
ZAxisMapping 4 5 and protocol should be IMPS/2
2) in my XF86Config-4 I should add
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" and again Option "Protocol" should be "IMPS/2"

First - which one to edit? Or maybe both?
Second - When I do this and restart X, I try to use mouse wheel:
If I scroll down - it behaves like right mouse click
If I scroll up - it behaves like left mouse click.

My mouse is A4tech IRW-5. Sctoll works Ok in Windows.
I have Linux Mandrake 9.0

Any ideas?
Thanks for your time
Relja Arandjelovic
