In /etc/X11/XF86Config-4, in the InputDevice section for your mouse, add
the line:
Option	Emulate3Buttons	"true"
to emulate a third button by pressing the other two at once.

As for your scroll buttons, I have two little buttons on my Toshiba that
do the same thing. Try adding this line to the same section as above:
Option	"ZAxisMapping"	"4 5"
That should make them function as intended.
