IntelliOptical @ mandrake with 5 buttons?

I'm using an IntelliOptical with my Mandrake, connected via USB.
mandrake just had drivers for USB / wheel, so i just can use 3 buttons. how can i get all 5 buttons to work?

This is what I have in my x config for a five button optical,
    Identifier	"Mouse1"
    Driver	"mouse"
    Option "Protocol"    "ExplorerPS/2"
    Option "Device"      "/dev/psaux"
    Option "Buttons"      "7"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"
And to get the wheel working properly you will need to have a script like this,

xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5"
set to run when you do startx.
