didn't you specify the size when you were developing it?  if so, use:

File>export movie

You should also use the "publish settings/preview" to optimize your movie first.

after you've exported it, use your html editor to place it where you'd like on your page.

If you use 'File->Publish" you can tell it to generate an HTML file for the banner ad.  You can open that file and take the <object> code from it.  Then you could use DHTML and a CSS to place it at precise pixel coordinates if you want.  Just give it a layer.

Or export the flash banner then use Dreamweaver MX to place the banner, you can even do the CSS in dreamweaver.

// inside CSS
.banner{ width:100;height:50;top:50;left:50 }

// inside HTML
<div class="banner">
   <object>flash banner here</object>

That should work, just adjust the CSS code for proper start coord, and the same width and height as your banner.

Or you could do the whole site in Flash :-)

Oh, forgot... you need to include the css in the DHTML code (obviously =/)
