Put this script in the tag between </title> and <head>

<script language="JavaScript">
<!--

function loading()
{
 InternetExplorer = navigator.appName.indexOf("Microsoft") != -1;
 path = InternetExplorer ? parent.loader : parent.document.loader;
 
 frame = path.PercentLoaded();
 path.TGotoFrame("_flash0",frame);
}


//-->
</script>

Then before the <object> tag add this

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=JavaScript>
<!--

var InternetExplorer = navigator.appName.indexOf("Microsoft") != -1;
function loader_DoFSCommand(command, args)
 
 {
  if (command == "loader")
      {loading();}    
 }
 
 
// Hook for Internet Explorer
if (navigator.userAgent && navigator.userAgent.indexOf("MSIE")>=0 && (navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Windows 9")>=0 || navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Windows NT")>=0)) {
      document.write('<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=VBScript\> \n');
      document.write('on error resume next \n');
      document.write('Sub loader_FSCommand(ByVal command, ByVal args)\n');
      document.write('  call loader_DoFSCommand(command, args)\n');
      document.write('end sub\n');
      document.write('</SCRIPT\> \n');
}
//-->
</SCRIPT>
then make relevant changes to the object tag as below:

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
 codebase="http://active.macromedia.com/flash2/cabs/swflash.cab#version=3,0,0,0"
 id="loader" width=100% height=100%>
<param name=movie      value="loader.swf">
<param name=quality    value="high">
<param name=bgcolor    value="#FFFFFF">
<embed src="loader.swf"
 name=loader
 swliveconnect="true"
 loop="false"
 quality="high"
 scale="exactfit"  
 type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash">
</embed></object>

Then in the flash movie create the loader scene and add 100 rames. In the first key frame add stop action and in the last add the action to go to and play your movie.

Now create a movie clip in frame1 and inside it in the first frame add this action

FS Command ("loader", "")


test it and see it in action
