I presume you are using 1.5 or later of Scriptaculous ...

I have always used the class form of the handle, but I see that you  
may use an ID as well -- I stand corrected.

<div id="myDraggable123">
<div class="myHandleClass" id="handle123">
Drag Me, oh please Drag Me
Some stuff here that forces a scroll.

with class reference (personal favorite):

new Draggable('myDraggable123',{handle:'myHandleClass'});

or with ID:

new Draggable('myDraggable123',{handle:'handle123'});
