Issues with Logitech USB Wheel Mouse in X

Hello, I'm having problems getting the mouse wheel to work on the mouse.

I have tried the following :

Identifier "Mouse"

Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"


Identifier "Mouse"

Option "Protocol" "usb"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Buttons" "5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

They both allow my mouse to move and click around, but the mouse wheel doesn't function at all.

I am using XFree86 Version 4.3.0 kernel 2.4.20 dist Slack 9.0

I'm using a logitech USB mouse successfully, with the little USB->PS2 adaptor, on psaux. I don't specify Buttons, my zaxismapping is the same as yours, I also use IMPS/2. I additionally use Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes", but that shouldn't be relevant. I'm using a logitech Dual Mouseman optical. What specific model are you using?
