    How do I stop an animation once it plays?

      Okay, that's not as quite as simple as it sounds. What I want to do is create a page that many other pages link to. This will be my index page. When it loads, the Flash movies play. But, when they return to this page after leaving it to go somewhere else on my site, I don't want the movies to play again.

       

      I thought of just having an HTML page that looks exactly like it and then linking the other pages to it, but, since there are a whole lotta pages that need to link to it, search engines might rank that dummy page more highly making it the landing page and then no one would ever visit the real index page with the animations. What to do? Here's a prototype of the page I'm talking about. The animations are the rollover link buttons. Thanks!
