Is there something in KDE that I have to do to enable this as well?  I've 
just restarted my X/KDE with:

Section "InputDevice"
         Identifier  "Mouse0"
         Driver      "mouse"
         Option      "Protocol" "PS/2"
         Option      "Device" "/dev/psm0"
         Option      "Buttons" "5"
         Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

And it didn't make a difference ... I can use it as a third button, but 
with my focus on something like Mozilla, it doesn't scroll the page 
up/down ...

Thanks ...
