Something doesn't sound right here. The 5611 series products list themselves as being single-pole products with screw terminals - and you're describing what sounds like a three-way device with wire leads. It almost sounds like the wrong product was put in the box. Regardless...
First of all, I want to make sure that we're replacing a light switch. I am assuming that the two wires are the hot feed, and the switched-hot return to the light fixture. I dont' want to rule out the posssibliity that if, say, a receptacle used to occupy this box, the white white may actually be a neutral - in which case, installing a switch here will cause a short.
Assuming for the time being that it is a standard 3-way switch, of the three wires on the unit, one should be listed as the "common", and the other two as "travellers" - connect the common to one of the two house wires coming from the wall, connect one of the travellers to the other house wire, and place a wire nut on the remaining traveller (unused). If you can't figure out which wire is which, just guess and if it doesn't work, try a different wire combimation - there's only three possible ways to wire it and only one of them won't work.
