Progress bar while waiting for modal window

Ok...I've got a page with a link to a modal window.  Clicking the link opens the modal, but (for reasons i wont get into) it takes a long time for the window to open.  I need some sort of indicator saying that a link has been clicked.  I was looking at doing something like

1.  User clicks link on main window
2.  Turn on div showing "Loading" message in main window
3.  After modal window is displayed, turn off div in main window

Is it possible to send js back and forth between modal and non-modal windows?  Or is there maybe a better solution than the one above?

Ah yes, footnote: Works, except for popup blocking, which blocks the popup.  Gotta turn that off =)
