    It should be the same as other MS mice, you install the intellipoint software and it will put a link to the mouse in the other section (at the bottom) of System Preferences.

    Careful, says it's for 10.2 - 10.4. It will probably work, but who knows if it'll cause kernel panics.

    It works but it didnt have any options for the side button that mine has. I need to program it to go "back" on a website. So was this not safe to run it?

    If it's not causing problems, then I guess it's okay. I had read an earlier post that the MS Driver caused issues, and in some instances kernel panics. Probably had nothing to do with driver, but who knows.

    I use the 5000 as well. Would like to use the other buttons, but unsure if it's worth it or not...

    I have the same Mouse and use SteerMouse to program the side button. Works great.

    It's the UNIX [Mac]/Linux equivalent of a Microsoft Blue Screen.
