Re: ImExPS/2?

I've been using "ExplorePS/2" as my default protocol for a "Trust" 7 button
mouse. 7 because of left, right, middle, scoll up, scroll down, left side,
right side. My XFree86 v4 config file looks like this....

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Mouse"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol"    "ExplorerPS/2"
    Option "Device"      "/dev/psaux"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"
    Option "Buttons"     "7"

Then in my X & GDM startup scripts I've tagged the following lines to the

xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5"
imwheel -k -b "67"

This enables both the scroll wheel and side buttons in applications that
support them. So in Mozilla I can go back & forward and scroll easily up and
down the page.

I was having a quick look around today and found a listing for the ImExPS/2
driver, which supposedly supports 5 button mice like the MS intellimouse.

It would be rather handy to have the extra buttons, but other information
seemed scarce to say the least. Is anyone using this driver for X or GPM,
what do you use to configure the buttons?
