Logitech Elite Duo help

I've got the Logitech Elite Duo wireless set up on my linux box. How can I get the mousewheel and the 5th button on the mouse to work?

I'm running RH 8.0 , and I've been using Linux for about an hour

I don't know for sure about the fifth button, but you should be able to get the wheel working with ZAxisMapping. Add this to your mouse section of your XF86Config:
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
To get more buttons, the option is something like ButtonCount, but I don't know for sure, and I don't know how to make that button do anything. Try the XFree manual:
Edit: from browsing the XFree manual, I think the ButtonCount option is:
Option "Buttons" "6"
