Compatible, but Unsupported Mice 

The following mice are compatible to Red Hat Linux but may require
"tweaking" to use.
. The Microsoft IntelliMouse (the one with a blue ``scroll-wheel''
  between the two buttons) is compatible with XFree86-3.3; use of the
  scroll-wheel can be enabled using the `Translations' resource
  available in some X11 applications. Red Hat does not offer support
  for configuring the IntelliMouse.

  18.2.  Others
  ·  Microsoft Intellimouse

If you run xf86config, it should get you to where you set up the mouse
-- choose auto, and if it doesn't detect it as an IntelliMouse, it
should give you the chance to choose it from a list.

I don't have one myself, so you'll have to tool around with it a bit
(isn't Linux fun!?) :)
