Boot to SWF movie on Linux

This is a Linux machine connected to a plasma display in our office.  Looking for a Linux solution to perform the following:

1) When the system boots, I want it to load a url and play a flash movie, ie. http://localhost/mymovie.swf
2) Change the window so it's full screen

At the moment all we have is the SWF file. I'm opened to suggestions on the LInux platform we should use, broswers, flash players, etc.

Thanks!
Mike

Take a look at this.

Setting the xinitrc  properly should auto start the browser.
along with firefox 3 and this plug in.   https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1568


You may also take a look at openkiosk. But it looks more like a management system for multiple kiosks.
