The simplest way to load content in AS3 is to have an swf load in your main content swf.  In order to do this you need to ensure that the loader.swf stage is the same size as the main content.swf stage.

Create a new flash AS3 document and add a new layer.  Give the 2 layers the following names:
  text
  actions (lock this layer)

Within the text layer create a dynamic text field and give it an instance name of precent.
On the action layer copy the following code into the actions panel.  I can't take the credit for this code, its a tutorial Lee Brimelow provided on his gotoandlearn web site.

Hope this helps.
//Creates an instances of the loader class
var l:Loader = new Loader();
l.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(ProgressEvent.PROGRESS, loop);
l.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, done);
l.load(new URLRequest("content.swf"));
 
function loop(e:ProgressEvent):void
{
	var perc:Number = e.bytesLoaded / e.bytesTotal;
	percent.text = Math.ceil(perc*100).toString();
}
 
function done(e:Event):void
{
	removeChildAt(0);
	percent = null;
	addChild(l);
}
