Mouse wheel problems in ASPLinux

Hey there people,

Not quite sure where to post this, this seems as good a place as any. I just isntalled ASPLinux( and I'm having problems getting my wheelmouse to function properly. It's a Kensington Optical-Mouse-In-A-Box (Basic 5 button wheel mouse), but the wheel doesn't work. I've tried both mouseconfig and editing the X startup script, but I can't seem to get the thing to go. Any advice? I've searched around, but most everything is Slackware, and I've tried it, but it hasn't seemed to help. Thanks!
