You can load the copycat screen and remove the Rem( ' ) out of each buttons VB code for A & B axis.

The Mach3 Copycat wizard only supports 3 axis.

as Graham said, use a screeneditor like Machscreen, open the Copycat screenset (C:\mach3\addons\copycat\copycat.set)
and edit the code of the button's where cou need 5 axis.
anything is possible, just try to do it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.
