Angry Mandrake 9 and MS Wireless Intelimouse

I just finished installign mandrake 9 and my mouse will not go side to side only up and down. I have made the change to modules file adding 'hid' (just like all the other versions before) but this time it did not work. Does anyone have any opinions of fixes for this problem.

There may be another solution to this problem but this is the only one that works for me. Drop out of X by hitting CTRL-ALT-F1, login, SU to root, use nano, pico, etc. to edit the /etc/X11/XFConfig-4 file. Find the Mouse input device section and make the following changes:

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

The "Identifier" field may be different, if so don't change it. The main change that needs to be made is the "Emulate3Buttons" field.
