Hi albion!
Here's a script that'll do it:
I also uploaded it to http://home1.gte.net/stratmhx/Animation/anim.html, just in case you want to see it "in action". It'll work fine in Netscape.
You can initialize as many images as you want in the anim-Array and the code will automatically play all of them (using the length-Attribute). Pathnames can be relative or absolute, just as they would be in the document.

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>Animation-Demo</TITLE>
<script language="JavaScript">
  anim=new Array();  // preload Images for smooth Animation
  anim[0]=new Image(); anim[0].src="1.jpg";
  anim[1]=new Image(); anim[1].src="2.jpg";
  anim[2]=new Image(); anim[2].src="3.jpg";
  anim[3]=new Image(); anim[3].src="4.jpg";
  anim[4]=new Image(); anim[4].src="5.jpg";
  apos=0; //next Image to be used for animation

  function Anim() {
    document.images[0].src=anim[apos++].src;
    apos%=anim.length; //wrap at end
    AnimTimer=setTimeout("Anim()",300);
  }
</script>

</HEAD>

<H1>  Hi there!</H1>
<H2> This is a short demo of the animation you were looking for...
<!-- if the link is supposed to lead somewhere, just remove the "return false", which stops Netscape from following the link -->
  <a href="javascript:void()" onclick="return false" onMouseOver="Anim()" onMouseOut="clearTimeout(AnimTimer)">
  <!-- need a link for mouseover!! -->
  <!-- clearTimeout stops the animation -->
    <img src="1.jpg" height=40 width=40 border=0></a>
<BR>
<H3>
Good luck and have fun!
