You need to have the ZAxisMapping option for your mouse in your XF86Config file. Here is my mouse configuration as an example:

Code:
    Identifier  "Mouse1"
    Driver  "mouse"
    Option "Protocol"    "imPS/2"
    Option "Device"      "/dev/mouse"
    Option "Buttons"     "5"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4  5"

/etc/X11
also try the "locate" command

darinf@gentoo darinf $ locate XF86Config
/etc/X11/XF86Config.example
/etc/X11/XF86Config~

It should be in /etc/X11 or /etc/X11R6 or something to that effect.

You can always use the locate or find commands to find files. (ex: locate XF86Config)

killer of giants... you may want to just follow the instructions at www.xfree.org in the docs section. I've been using my mx700 in xfree for over a year with all buttons except for the 'switch' buttons working just fine. If you set up your XF86Config file correctly the cruise buttons should automatically work. Not sure how to adjust how far each 'click' scrolls though.
