Congratulations! You know that you can map mouse buttons to keys, do
you? You will have to use kernel arguments like adbuttons=103,108 or
so. To find out about keycodes on the consoles, use "showkey".

Modify /etc/X11/Xmodmap. The corresponding line for my German keyboard
keycode 0x3B =  BackSpace
To find out what keycodes your keys generate on X, use "xev".
