You need something like this in /etc/X11/XF86Config:

Section "InputDevice"
# Look at /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/docs/README.mouse for more info
 Identifier  "Mouse1"
 Driver      "mouse"
# Option      "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
# Option     "Protocol" "usb"
 Option     "Protocol" "Auto"
 Option     "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
 Option     "Buttons" "5"
# Option     "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
 Option     "ZAxisMapping" "Y"

Adjust for your mouse of course.
