how to move an image?

Does anyone have a reference or idea how i could move images over the length of a graphic, say using a combo of asp and dhtml?

say i have a static graphic with a width of 500 pixels which representsd th elenght of a course. then, i have two small images (2 people) whose positions are updated every 2 minutes or so, citing the distance that they are from the end of the course.
The length of the course would be the width of the image.
The position the person relative to the course would be the distance they are from the end of the course. With every update, the image should position itself closer to the finish of the course graphic. Can this be done? how?

You'd have to set them up on layers/divs, and move them. For a good example and a lot of code you can copy, go to www.dansteinman.com/dynduo

Or check out www.htmlguru.com , he does similar things there.

The above comments were not very precise...you wanna set up two layers like in the code below

<div id="BACKGROUNDLAYER" style="position:absolute; width:479px; height:222px; z-index:1; left: 302px; top: 59px">
<div id="PEOPLELAYER" style="position:absolute; width:16px; height:54px; z-index:1; top: 11px; left:
<%=NEWPOSISTION %>px">
<img src="YOUR PEOPLE IMAGE" width="26" height="22"></div>
  <img src="YOUR BACKGROUND IMAGE" width="300" Height="161"> </div>

Everytime you want the people to move, just increase(or decrease) the amount of the variable NEWPOSITION

place your images in the corresponding layers, tweak the sizes and initial positions and you are all set.

you can also change the top position with another variable to adjust up and down.

The above comment works, but for each change you have to go to web server and come back. A lot of round trips go back and forth which are not likely in web design. The best solution is to do everything in client side script.You could change properties left and top of the image. The sample that webwoman gives you is a very good orientation.I do not have time to work on this sample, but by changing the properties of the image you could do the one that you need.
