    Loading and playing an external SWF in Flash CS3 (AS2)

      I've been trying to figure this one out for a couple of days now, and it's driving me nuts!

      I'm new to flash (I'm using CS3 with AS2), but I've managed to convert a template into an almost finished site.
      My problem is this: I've made an external slideshow swf which works fine if used by itself. It's saved as a flash 7 AS2 according to the program (Aleo Slideshow Gallery Maker) used to generate it. It's in the same directory as the main swf file. I'm not sure of the code to load and play the external slideshow swf with a button in the main swf file. Do I need to change the html as well as the swf script? I've tried all sorts of things, but I can't figure the script out on how to finish the flash to include the slideshow.

      The SWF files inquestion are attached - I'm just using sample iamages at the moment. When I go to the gallery page, I want to be able to click on the fly to load and play the slideshow.

      Any help would be massively appreciated. Cheers.
