Map thumb buttons to middle click in linux

I've got a mouse with a thumb button that xev shows as button 9. I'd like to map it to be the same as a middle click (which, according to xev, is button 6). How do I do it? I'm using Ubuntu Jaunty.

"I think you'll be able to get this working with an xmodmap tweak. Have a look at the Mouse section in the Ubuntu Community documentation, especially the entries for the Multi-buttoned Mouse and Logitech Marble Mouse USB.

You'll also find this article on changing mouse buttons through xmodmap useful."
