remapping mouse buttons

Since doing a fresh install of Edgy my logitech optical trackman 8
button mouse behaves differently :-(
It used to be that of the three buttons that are next to my thumb, the
top two would act the same as clicking with the scroll wheel - opening a
new tab in Konqueror etc. BUT more importantly, it would paste
highlighted text. Now only clicking the scroll wheel does this.
I know that that is probably how it should be but it was so much easier
just having to move my thumb up a tiny fraction to paste stuff. Now I
have to highlight using the trackball and click the very small scroll
wheel which is next to the trackball which, because of their close
proximity causes the mouse pointer to move before I can click in the
right place ughh!
Anyway. How can I remap the mouse buttons to revert back to using button
number 6 or 7 (I'm not sure which but it is one of those two) as a
'middle' mouse button - so that I can paste with it?
