<div id="header">
            
                  <!--Valid flash version 8.0-->
                  <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
                          codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,24"
                            width="980" height="430">

                        <param name="movie" value="flash/Header_f8.swf?button=2" />
                         <param name="quality" value="high" />
                         <param name="menu" value="false" />

                         <!--[if !IE]> <-->
      
                         <object data="flash/Header_f8.swf?button=2"
                                     width="980" height="430" type="application/x-shockwave-flash">
      
                             <param name="quality" value="high" />
                                 <param name="menu" value="false" />
                                 <param name="pluginurl" value="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />
                             FAIL (the browser should render some flash content, not this).
                         </object>
                   <!--> <![endif]-->
                  </object>
            </div>

you mean from page to page you wish to not download the file again?

try in .htaccess file to put

# 3months
<FilesMatch "\.(ico|gif|jpe?g|png|flv|pdf|swf|mov|mp3|wmv|ppt)$">
  Header set Cache-Control "max-age=7257600"
</FilesMatch>
# WEEK
<FilesMatch "\.(js|css|swf|gz|min)$">
  Header set Cache-Control "max-age=604800"
</FilesMatch>
# 45 MIN
<FilesMatch "\.(html|htm|txt|php)$">
  Header set Cache-Control "max-age=2700"
</FilesMatch>

that is much more stable...

at the point you may as well do this to...

# CMSMS unset ETag
<FilesMatch "\.(ico|pdf|flv|jpg|jpeg|png|gif|js|css|gz|swf)$">
Header unset ETag
FileETag None
</FilesMatch>

look up yahoo ETag, or yslow for mor information...

Cheers
