I am looking for a good tutorial on how to create a vertical scrolling text box.

What I mean by that is:

On the side of my page there will be some text that without the use of buttons or mouseovers, will scroll slowly vertically, displaying different text.

One section would scroll up, then when it gets to the middle stop moving for about 30 seconds (to allow people to read and click on it) than the text scrolls up to be replaced by another set of text.

I am assuming that this would be done in flash. I currently have Flash MX.

Any thoughts?

That thing is called "News Ticker". If you try to search for "free flash news ticker" on Google, you will surely find what you need.
