I got a Mac-mini but I'm not using Mac mice, I have a Razer Imperator mice. Checking under System Preference, there are only options that allow modifying scrolling speed, and tracking speed. So my question is how do I modify the left/right button of my mice since I want to navigate back and fourth between pages within Safari. Plus, I also want to change the scrolling behavior, it's completely opposite with Window, I scroll down, it goes up, I scroll up it goes down :(.

(1) Someone with a fancy mouse like you should answer this more completely, but you'll like USB Overdrive. (2) Reverse the scrolling direction in Lion – Jason Salaz Nov 27 '11 at 9:59
The scrolling is because it works that way on iPhone and iPad. – Thorbjørn Ravn Andersen Nov 27 '11 at 10:30
@JasonSalaz: I installed Razer driver for Mac already. I guess the USB Overdrive would do the same thing. My concern is how to go back to a page in Safari when hitting the side button of my mouse. I can get along with the awkward scrolling direction, but I do need the "back" button though. Thanks anyway. – Chan Nov 27 '11 at 19:17

With BetterTouchTool you should be able to re-assign all the buttons as you wish for a particular program or system-wide.
