this question comes about ever so often, please search.
the solution will most likely be adding a line to your Xorg/XFree86 configuration file.

add the following line to your xorg.conf file under the section that controls your mouse:

Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

See HERE for some mouse assistance. It may also work in Mandrake.
