Check the manual, if you don't have it then you can download from Canon's website.

I am not certain about the 40D in particular, but many Canon cameras that have both the main and rear control wheels have a Custom Function that allows you to swap the function of those wheels.

However, as you become more experienced, I bet you find yourself adjusting the aperture a lot more than the shutter speed. In general, aperture effects depth of field that's often more important to the "look" of your images... While shutter speed just falls where it will, so long as it's high enough to stop action and make for a steady shot (and a lot of the time you would adjust to get adequate shutter speed by changing ISO, as much as by setting the shutter speed itself).

Don't think that this is possible on the 40D.
