Loop chained effects in jQuery

Hi.  
I am attempting to create a loop of elements that fade in and out (ie, a slideshow).  I understand how to use the callback function to control the timing of the fades, but how do i loop this?
It feels like a infinite regression.
Thanks,
Chip

$(document).ready(function(){
	$('div#slideshow').children().hide();
	fadeElement('div#slide1', function(){fadeElement('div#slide2');});
});

function fadeElement(elementName, f){   $(elementName).fadeIn(3000).delay(2000).fadeOut(3000, f);
	return;
}

Open in new window

Ahh.  Ok.  I saw something like this as I was looking for a solution.  The design flaw was trying to link the effects, rather than have a parent function call the event.  My unfamiliarity with JS meant I was unaware of the setInterval function.
Sounds like that is the way to go.  Thanks.
