Scrolling list of links? Does anyone know of a good tutorial (very little flash knowledge)

Hello Experts.  I've used little or no flash to this point, but would like to start.  I have a dynamic list of links (coldfusion), which I'd like to present like macromedia (adobe) does on the exchange page: http://www.macromedia.com/cfusion/exchange/index.cfm#loc=en_us&view=sn100&viewName=Macromedia%20Exchange&avm=1

(You see the exchange top 10, it's a scrolling list of links).

Does anyone know of a good tutorial or have examples of how to achieve this.  I have Flash 8.  Is there a component or something I can use???  Thanks so much for any help advice.

Even though this tutorial uses xml /soap service fields, the concepts are the same.

there's also the bycicle trips tutorial which should be part of your default install of Flash 8.
