How do I add a flash header to Wordpress?

I've installed the Kimili plugin but I have NO idea how to put flash in to the header.

I'm just playing around with wordpress for now so I am using the default template.

How do I make that big blue header a flash header?

I've googled myself in to the Kimili plugin but I don't have any knowledge of PHP.  Can anyone provide an idiots guide to adding flash to my wordpress header?

Hello,

Sorry

Use  
      [kml_flashembed movie="/path/to/your/movie.swf" width="550" height="400" /]

instead of

<kml_flashembed movie="/path/to/your/movie.swf" height="value" width="value" />

I've seen this info before.

The first one just says replace your header.php text with this "_________"

Really though? The entire header PHP should be replaced with that code?

The second link contains nothing.  Embedding flash in a post is easy.  I can't get it in to the header.

Hello,

You need to put the code just in header.php at Header image code ie, start with this code -
< img src = >.

Regards.

I don't see this anywhere in the header.php

I do see where the header image is in the CSS though.  How would I add a flash movie if it were done in the css?

I've attached the header PHP.  I'll do the same for the CSS in a separate comment.

Ah, there it is.  I have to put in the full URL for the flash file.

How do I place it? Right now it sits right at the very top.  Can I move that around?
