Making a Flash page scrollable

Hello...
  I purchased a flash website template a few days ago and it's just about perfect for us, except that we need for it to have the ability to scroll up and down - just like a regular web page would. You can view it here:

The right-most panel of the cruise ship is fine, that can stay stationary as is, but we'd like for the main left panel to be scrollable up and down, as we have quite a bit of text to put on that main opening page.
   Ideally we'd like to have the scrolling handle be right about where those parrots are (or just below in order to keep the parrot image). We'd also like to be able to keep the nice light blue background with the very dim palm tree image remain in the back while the user scrolled up/down the page.

Is this possible? We have Flash MX, but we're quite new to it.

The .FLA file for the main page is here :

Thanks

(It is a very nice template!)

Flash MX has what is called "Scrollpane component"

See website here for example:
http://www.developingwebs.net/flash/mx_scrollingtextboxes.php

But to integrate this Scrollpane into your Template will be a tough job, will take same time. Also it would be nice to make the scroll-bar have colours that fit the overall design of the template.

3 solutions:
- learn to work with flash youreself, it will take you a few days to understand the components part

- increase the points of this question to 500 and have an expert here do the change for you (possibly, not sure if there will be an expert willing)

- find a webdesigner / flashexpert near you and request a proposal for the change
