Animated pictures (from jpegs) for a website using flash.

Hi folks!  Hope someone can help me....

Im publishing a website for a hotel as a favour for a friend of mine.  Unfortunately, he has the site hosted somewhere that does not have any database, cgi (or any kind of scripting other than javascript) or frontpage extensions, which limits what i can do for them.

So, I'm doing a fairly simple but clean site using cascading style sheets, javascript, cgi hosted externally (for emailing form data) and flash.

The layout of the site will have a header at the top, three columns and a footer.

As part of the header, I want to have three pictures, which will change depending on where the person is in the site.  For example, when a person is looking at the room details for the hotel, there will be pictures of the hotel rooms.  OR, if they are at the main page, there will be pictures of the outside of the hotel and so on.

I have three sets of three pictures for each section, each taken at different times of the day.  What I want to do is animate them so that the initial pictures fade in when the site is first visited (or refreshed), then after a set amount of time, the next three pictures for that section load.  I want the fade to go across from left to right, changing each picture as it goes.  (Possibly even reverse it as well, so the pictures fade in from right to left?)

I don't know how to go about this properly, and whether I should just have one animation which does the lot (could possibly be too large though as it would have to be the width of the browser window) or whether to have each of the 3 pictures as a seperate animation.

So, just to recap, I want 3 pictures showing at once side by side, then after some time passes, a fade will start in the left box fading in another picture, then the second picture will start changing then finally the third.  If it's too complicated to fade left to right AND right to left, a left to right solution will be fine.

I know the basics in Flash MX, so you don't need to start at the beginning per se, but give me an idea of what I have to do and the best way to go about it.

Thanks.
