Though people weren’t used to scrolling in the mid-nineties, nowadays it’s absolutely natural for users to use the browser’s scrollbar. For a continuous long content, like an article or a tutorial, scrolling provides even better usability than slicing up the text to several pages.
You don’t have to squeeze everything into the top of your homepage or above the fold. To make sure that people will scroll, you need to follow certain design principles and provide content that keeps your visitors interested. Also keep in my mind that content above the fold will still get the most attention and is also crucial for users in deciding whether your page is worth reading at all.
