Now altough I am almost sure that this modal gives you a way of doing this and for this you should read the manual or something, but anyhow since you could specify an external html file to be the content of your modal, well then this solves it, because you can set the scrolling functionality right from you html file, you have to consider the dimensions of course of both your modal and your html source!

If at all possible it may be easier to use a jquery dialog: http://docs.jquery.com/UI/Dialog. It's very customizable and I know it will automatically add scroll bars if the content is larger than the dialog. Also for information on how to load an external html file into the dialog (which you may be doing, I'm not sure) look at: http://forum.jquery.com/topic/loading-existing-html-pages-into-a-jquery-dialog-window

This renders as a DIV with class="modalDialog_contentDiv". You could perhaps try adding this CSS to the page:
div.modalDialog_contentDiv {overflow:scroll;}

Open in new window
