Scroll Wheel on Mouse is NOT working

My scroll wheel on my mouse is not working in SUSE 10.

I have the wheel enabled in YaST.

Here is my mouse section in xorg.conf:

Section "InputDevice"
Driver "mouse"
Identifier "Mouse[1]"
Option "AutoSoft" "on"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Name" "Generic"
Option "Protocol" "Auto"
Option "Vendor" "Auto"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

BTW my mouse is a Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 2.0
