    Depends on the driver support for the mouse. My guess is that there'll be none.

    If you have an Apple branded mouse, the OS can control what buttons are mapped to what actions in System Preferences.

    If you have a third party mouse, the native System Preferences are pretty limited.

    I use a Microsoft mouse at work and it uses the Intellipoint System Preferences to set it's options.

    See screenshots for the limited options available to the third party mouse in System Preferences and the options the Mouse has using it's own driver support.

    Since the generic looking mouse almost certainly has no Mac driver support, you may be able to get it to work with a third party Mac mouse driver like SteerMouse.
