Using Mouse-Wheel Scroll in Workbench 3.1

I'm pretty sure I've got my USB mouse configured properly in WinUAE but I want to be able to scroll up and down normal Workbench (3.1) windows using the mouse-wheel rather than clicking on the arrows or dragging the slider bar. I am assuming I need a little program to enable this function but can anyone tell me what it is called?

I know packages like ClassicWB will probably do this but I like my Workbench setup to be plain and boring (just like me!) so was hoping I can just install a tweak for mouse-wheel scroll support. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Continued... I've downloaded and setup (I think) a few different files from Aminet that are supposed to add mouse-wheel support to Workbench but presumably I also need to customise the WB GUI to make the mouse-wheel scroll the currently active window up and down.

Anyone out there able to help?

The file u need is FreeWheel (on Aminet).
Just put it in your WB-Startup drawer, reboot, and you're done.
