imwheel on startup

Ack I feel foolish.

I installed and configured IMWheel appropriately, but I went to bed before making sure that it would run when booting up.

and now I can't find where the instructions were to set IMwheel in the startup and I am having to run "xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5" when I log in to get my mouse buttons to work appropriately.

if someone would be so kind as to point me towards the "lost" configuration instructions or show me the steps.

I am running FC3 and will post any file contents necessary. thank you

Simplest would be to put the linexmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5 at the end of your ~/.bashrc file, but the proper place to put it is somewhere in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file (but I do not have linux running at the moment, so cannot be sure of the format, or exactly where, sorry).
