Mapping the mouse in X


Im wondering how I can set up the mouse buttons 6 and 7 in my XFree. xev reports that they work, so my questions is, how can i map keyboard keys to it.
For example, i want to map the key combination ALT-F12 to mouse key 7...

I searched the web and this forum, but i didnt find anything useful.

Any ideas?
