AFAIK, the first line is the one that works. I've never seen anything
else used. As for why it isn't working, check your mouse driver. I have
scrollers on my Toshiba Satellite, and I have to use the "ImPS/2" driver
to get them to work (I don't believe the regular PS/2 driver supports
scroll functions.)
