Since switching from Core 1 to Core 2, my PS/2 Scroll Wheel mouse has 
not been working.

It was fine in FC1, but stopped working in FC2 Test 2 and Test 3.  The 
final release also fails to make it work.

My /etc/X11/xorg.conf file contains these lines:

Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier  "Mouse0"
	Driver      "mouse"
	Option	    "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
	Option	    "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
	Option	    "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
	Option	    "Emulate3Buttons" "no"

I've tried changing the protocol to various things.

Are there other configuration files I should check, or include here to 
help find the problem?

The mouse has two buttons and scroll wheel which also acts as button 3. 
  It has "Trekker" written on it, and if you open it up, you'll see 
Microsoft stamped components in it.  In fact it looks exactly like a the 
same mouse that has "Microsoft" written where "Trekker" is, only 
difference is in price!
