Want to be able to have a Flash menu bar like this

I would like to do a Flash menu bar like this:

I am a novice at best with Flash and am hoping that I can find some code/script already written that will do this.  Free is always nice.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?  I've searched on the web but haven't come up with anything similar yet.

Thanks for your time!

    Pretty nice.

    You can likely get there from this link...

    This tutorial will walk you through the process.  Just a heads up, this menu that you're asking about incorporates a movie function that was likely created once and then duplicated for each button.

    (don't re-invent the wheel!)

    I think the most problems newer Flash developers have is thinking in the timeline.  Everything doesn't have to happen in sequence.  The beauty of Flash is that you can create "stuff within stuff" meaning a single frame on your main timeline can consist of a number of symbols underneath, whether they are buttons, movies or static graphics.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the responses and links.  Any ideas on how the rest of it was done?  For example when clicking on a menu button, how the image/text displayed changes?  I'm a novice here so any tutorials that you can point me to would be helpful.
