I actually just ran into this at home on my laptop. All I did to resolve
the problem was to go into the file and change the protocol from "PS/2" to
"IMPS/2" and then restarted X.

Subject: USB wheel mouse in RH7.3 on Precision 530
A number of our users have ordered the Precision 530 with USB mouse option
(logitech/dell) and Redhat 7.3. However, the scroll wheel does not function
in Xwindows. Is there a specific configuration needed on the Precision
series w/ linux for USB mice?
Looking around on the web, most people recommended using "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
in XF86Config but this just causes mouse movement to be extremely erratic
and unusable. For now, we have resorted to using:
Option "Device "/dev/psaux"
Option "Protocol "PS/2"
Option "Emulate3Buttons "yes"
Option "ZaxisMapping "4 5"
Option "Button" "5"
This works fine, just no mouse wheel. Using the wheel as a center button
