Have your index.html be the spalsh screen and put a metta redirect in it.

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" Content="10; URL=http://main.html">

why don't you try the free A-soft Splash screen ActiveX control?
It will only work under IE.

dagon's answer will work for most browsers.  ndnet's answer for only one.  Hmmm, which would I choose?  You can also do something with JavaScript if you want a pop-up window.

Even better, make your splash screen your first page then automatically transfer to your main page after a predefined time.
