Unhappy mouse wheel issues

ohk, well i am having a problem trying to get my mouse wheel to work. it funtions fine as a third button, but i can get it to scroll right. when i set the protocol to IMPS/2, it acts all funky and clicks random this and zips across the screen when i move it. so that is why you will notice the PS/2.
here is my input section for my mouse:
Section "InputDevice"

# Identifier and driver

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"

# When using XQUEUE, comment out the above two lines, and uncomment
# the following line.

# Option "Protocol" "Xqueue"

# Baudrate and SampleRate are only for some Logitech mice. In
# almost every case these lines should be omitted.

# Option "BaudRate" "9600"
# Option "SampleRate" "150"

# Emulate3Buttons is an option for 2-button Microsoft mice
# Emulate3Timeout is the timeout in milliseconds (default is 50ms)

# Option "Emulate3Buttons"
# Option "Emulate3Timeout" "50"

# ChordMiddle is an option for some 3-button Logitech mice

Option "ChordMiddle"


just to let you know, i have a 2/3 button gateway mouse (it is a logitech the third buttun is also the scroll wheel). since it says hat some logitech mice require the ChordMiddle on, i enabled it. can ne one help me, it's been 5 months without the wheel and i really need it (for games, and scrolling, and gimp).
I bought this version of red hat back in 2002 and i really am thinking of just starting clean with debian (deb was my first linux experience and it was insane, but now i think i have enough skill to manage it !)
