Control load order of flash, javascript and html Div's

My page receives a variable that is transferred from ASP to Javascript and then to Flash.  My problem is that sometimes teh SWF loads to slow and misses the variable.  

How can I ensure the folllowing load order
Page structure (has div elements)
Flash file (500 KB)

This will allow my JS to send info on which part of the flash file to display.

Alternatively, I could have it load the javascript before the flash file, but I need to know that the variable in javascript is set before teh Flash swf loads and makes a call to find out what the js value is.

use flashvars to get the value from the html (.asp) page into the flash movie.

the server compiles the page before the flash movie is initiated.

<param name="myVariable" value="<% response.write("232") %>" />
