It's version 7, don't know if 7.2 or 7.3

For your mouse I found this (here: http://gentoo-wiki.com/Mx510):
PS/2 MX518

Here's a method working fine with a MX518 plugged in via PS/2. You do not need to call or modify xmodmap using this method

File: /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Section "InputDevice"
Driver "mouse"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Option "CorePointer"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
#Option "Resolution" "800" #optional
Option "Buttons" "10"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 6 7"
EndSection

Ok, thanks.
Should i delete the other settings under the mouse section?
Now i looks like this

Section "InputDevice"

# Identifier and driver

Identifier "Mouse1"
Driver "mouse"

Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse2"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

You can leave these settings, and add the new one. Just make sure that you don't have another entry with
Identifier "Mouse0"

And that in your ServerLayout section you have a line saying
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
