I'm running Redhat 7.3 with KDE 3.0 and I've got a Dexxa 7 button mouse.  It has two side buttons and I'm wondering if It's possible to map them to keyboard combinations.  Maybe something in the XF86config-4 file and/or xmodmap?

Specifically I'd like to map them to Alt-'left arrow' and Alt-'right arrow' for going back and forward in Mozilla.
