Using the Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard’s zoom wheel to scroll

Just ran across instructions on using the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000’s “zoom slider” as a scroll wheel instead.

The instructions involve compiling a JScript.NET application and running an XSL transform on the keyboard’s config file. But it looks to me like it’d be a whole lot easier to just open the config file in a text editor and make a couple of manual edits. I’ll have to try it when I get over this danged cold and get back to the office.
