Horizontal Overflow Works, sort of
OMG! This is exactly what I was looking for and it works so amazingly well!!!
Well, actually, only in Firefox does it work really well. In both IE 6 and 7 it pushes the table all the way across the screen and ignores the overflow request.

I've figured out how to change the color of the scroll bars to enhance the design, (there's a great online tool here http://iconico.com/CSSScrollbar/) but Firefox won't acknowledge the request to change the color (in fact, this tool won't even be shown in Firefox).
If anyone has any thoughts about how I can accomplish both the overflow and the scrollbar color change in IE, I'd greatly appreciate it.
