Talking MouseMan & Scroll

I am unable to use the scroll on my Logitech Optical MouseMan PS2 in Xwindows. I am currently using Slack 9.1 and have set my XF86Config to properly reflect...

Option "Protocol" "MouseManPlusPS/2"

... while also making sure to comment out the "auto" detect strings above this. I restarted X and am still having problems getting the scroll to work. Any ideas?

In XF86Config in the mouse-section add the following line:

Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

This works great. What does this option mean though? X and Y for mouse vertical/horizontal movement and Z for vertical scroll?
