first post some more system specs, i.e. "ac97 audio" is specific for your sound card. have a read here.
second, if i understand you, you are wishing to run windows programs in linux, you'll need something like wine to do that. have a look here.
and third, a scroll wheel problem is not a problem at all, there are tons of threads explaining this, but, here goes.
open your /etc/X11/XF86Config file w/ any editor. look for the section
# Input devices
# Identifier and Driver
add the following lines
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Protocol" "PS2"
or whatever protocol is listed.
hope that gets you going.
