    well you found it, and it is a simple solution. You must edit your /etc/X11/XF86Config file. open that file in your favorite text editor, as the SU of course, then find the following section:

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Mouse0"

    (that is just what the top two lines are)

    make sure that you have two options these two options:

    Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"

    and

    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"


    That should do it. I am kinda suprised Psyche didn't do that automatically, oh well. :P : 8)
