How do I replace the JPEG header in the following drupal theme. I have tried, but have been unsuccessful. The flash header filename is header.swf with width = 890 height 175.

The code for my page.tpl.php page is below.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "">

<html xmlns="" lang="<?php echo get_page_language($language); ?>" xml:lang="<?php echo get_page_language($language); ?>">


  <title><?php if (isset($head_title )) { echo $head_title; } ?></title>

  <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />

  <?php echo $head; ?>  

  <script type="text/javascript" src="<?php echo get_full_path_to_theme(); ?>/script.js"></script>  

  <?php echo $styles ?>

  <?php echo $scripts ?>

  <!--[if IE 6]><link rel="stylesheet" href="<?php echo $base_path . $directory; ?>/style.ie6.css" type="text/css" /><![endif]-->  

  <script type="text/javascript"><?php /* Needed to avoid Flash of Unstyle Content in IE */ ?> </script>

You should be able to simply replace line 35 (<div class="Header-jpeg"></div>) with the code to insert your flash file.  Something like the following.
<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase=",0,0,0" WIDTH="890" HEIGHT="175" id="Header" ALIGN="">

<PARAM NAME="movie" VALUE="header.swf">

<PARAM NAME="quality" VALUE="high">


<EMBED src="header.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" WIDTH="890" HEIGHT="175" NAME="Header" ALIGN="" TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE=""></EMBED> </OBJECT>

Thanks. I had to replace the line (<div class="Header-jpeg"></div>) with your code in the following pages, then it appeared on every page within Drupal.
