mouse problem ??? help please

i've an A4/Tech mouse (WOP-35) which has 6 different buttons.

> left + right buttons. (total 2)
> 2 scrool one for up and down and the other for left - right movement of page. (total 2)
> one for back page and one for forward page (total 2)

sum of all 6 buttons.

and now please pay attention to input device configuration :

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Driver "mouse"
Option "CorePointer"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
Option "Buttons" "4 5"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"
Option "Buttons" "8 9"


i added the bold part. but most buttons not works :(
i can just use lef+right buttons and one scrool button.
the other works but not does what it is expected! [i mean when i round it pages change back - forward]

and the last 2 buttons do nothing!

help me please.
how do i have to change the configuration so as to use all buttons correctly ?
anyone here use a 6 buttoned-mouse and configured correctly?
Thanks in advance.
