I think I know what you are trying to do, at the bottom left of the page where all the properties appear, if you have it set up this way, you should have a box with Scroll, visable, hidden etc, set to scroll and save and put.
I might be right not sure.

IFRAMES could be what your looking for.

create 2 pages page1.htm page2.htmin page 1 add this

<iframe src ="page2.htm" width="200" height="200"></iframe>

do this first then we will talk about navigation

If you want a box that scrolls, read ranjans primer on CSS Scroll
http://www.dreamweaverclub.com/css-scroller.php ('http://www.dreamweaverclub.com/css-scroller.php')

<div style="width: 200px; height: 200px; overflow: scroll;">

iframes should only be used if you're linking to another html file, not simply to create a scrollbar.
