It looks like to me that the lines are just a standard line drawn in flash and with an alpha applied.
They are generating the movement with actionscript.

You can learn how to do the same thing here.
http://www.actionscripts.org/tutorials/intermediate/actionscripted_movement/index.shtml

Once you understand the principals it pretty easy.
Hope this helps. If you need more explination don't hesitate to ask.

Create an empty frame with setting the following variables
moveTowards = +1;
currentLineNumber =1;

Try creating three movie clips each with a line of your
choice.

Create a second keyframe and drag these in the root level and name each ("line1","line2","line3")

Create a third keyframe copying the three lines(f6).

The actions in the second frame should be something like:

currentLine = "line" + currentLineNumber;

if(getProperty(currentLine,_x) < nameofmovie._width){
setProperty("_x","nameofline",_x+moveTowards);
}
else if(getProperty(currentLine,_x) == nameofmovie._width){
moveTowards = -1;
}
else if(getProperty(currentLine,_x) == 0){
moveTowards = +1;
}

Then in the third line for looping purpose just add:

currentLineNumber= currentLineNumber+1
if(currentLineNumber>3){

currentLineNumber = 1;

{
gotoAndPlay (2);

************************************************** ***

I think that should do it, or at least help you do it,
also the speed at which each line moves is something
you'll have to experiment with.

I hope I have been of help
