In linux, the scroll wheel is generally used to emulate the third button, which in my opinion is much more helfull than that stupid scroll thing. I don't know of any way to make that thing work. However, if you don't want it to click you back five pages, which I unerstand, there is a program called imwheel that works really well for 3+ button mice. Try that, and see if it helps you out, it may even be able to do the scroll thing, have never tried, but I use it on my five buttons and have no real problems.
