Mouse wheel scrolling too much.

Hi all!!!

I have a Logitech optical mouse with a wheel and it does scrolling on web brosers very well, but when it comes to terminals (xterm or eterm), the scroll is too big, i mean it skips a lot of files to be shown if I do a "ls" on a directory with lots of files.

If I press shift while scrolling with the wheel, the scrolling is fine. How i can configure the amount of lines i want to scroll in terminals without having to press all the time the shift button?

I'm using Fluxbox 0.9.9 and Eterm 0.92.

Here i post my xorg.conf file (just the mouse device):

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/psaux"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
        Option      "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
Thanks a lot
