IntelliMouse ???

I just got an IntelliMouse ... it works fine as a 2 buttons PS/2 mouse. But how can I use the wheel at least as a thirs button ?
May be using it as a serial Microsoft mice will work ? (I can not try this as I do not have the proper converter)

For now, it is not possible to use the middle roller under linux.
It's a windows 95 only (for now) feature. It's like some HP printers, they can only be used from windows 95 or NT.

The above answer is incorrect. See this web site for details on how to configure Linux to recognize the Intellimouse wheel:
