Banner Ad Project

I need to create banner for my kids school website (ASP.net) that works similar to an animated gif but hyperlink to a different URL for each image displayed as it scrolls through (without refreshing the page).  I'm thinking that either Flash or Silverlight are the way to go, but do not own dev tools for either.  What are my options?  

Thanks in advance.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I might be able to help fix something up for you in Flash. It isn't difficult at all. If you are interested, leave a comment on my contact form (I'd rather not share my email address publicly to everyone) and I will get back to you ASAP

Though, if you want to try a hand at it yourself, there is a 30 day free trial of Flash Professional, and "oodles" of slideshow tutorials out there.

javascript solution is easy and can be found on the web. Search for "javascript" and "rotator"

Both solutions fit the need.  I ended up implementing the javascript solution as the school wanted to eliminate the need for plugins.  Thanks and points to both!

Hey, just wanted to add a few comments which hopefully are of some use to you.

For one, Adobe finally released the 30 day trials of Flash CS5:

Second, I stumbled across this article, and remembered you:

Hope that helps in some way,
