Wireless Keyboard/Mouse: how to configure?

I have a wireless combo of keyboard and mouse.
The basic functionality is OK. However, some
of the extra features do not work yet:

1) The middle mouse button is also a scroll
wheel. I can't get the scroll wheel working.
I have added the option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
to /etc/X11/xorg.conf, but that does not help.
What else should I try?

2) The keyboard has a row of special keys, which
should do things like: Back, Forward (in browser),
Volume up/down/mute (sound), play/stop/next/previous
(in media player). With xev I see the key sequence
of these keys (e.g. keycode 176 and 174 for volume
up/down). Is this Windows only stuff, or could
this be made to work under Xorg/FreeBSD?
