Default I just bought a new mouse. Can I use all the buttons I paid for?

I just got a Logitech MX620. It has a left, right, middle scroll wheel, the
middle scroll wheel rocks left and right, there's another button to the left
of the left button, and there are two side buttons, one forward and one aft.

Here's a picture of it.

The output of lsusb sez:

Also, I have this in my lshal output:

I'm totally confused because I used to know that the xorg.conf file was the
place to set stuff up. Now we have hal, evdev, imwheel, xbindkeys, and
probably more stuff I know even less about. AND, there's nothing in xorg.conf
that even vaguely looks like a mouse setup. I'd like the two side buttons to
play Back and Forward while in Firefox, and the button to the left of the Left
Mouse button to be a Search button in Firefox. I have no idea what a good
thing would be to do with the middle scroll wheel in left/right rocking mode.

Can someone get me jump started? Or tell me what extra info I need to share?

Thanks.

First, you can find out if the buttons work at all by using "xev"
and seeing if you get button events for all of them.

Second, you are in for some trouble because, as always, "they"
are in the middle of re-writing everything in the universe.

The tool you can use now to change the mouse config around if
you don't like the default is "xinput".

If you plug and unplug the mouse, or if you have a KVM switch
that has the effect of plugging and unplugging it, you'll
need to re-run the xinput commands every time you plug the
mouse back in. Doing that is one of the missing pieces
in the great xinput rewrite, but I whipped out this bit
of hackery to use till the wonderful stuff appears:

Good luck.
