I have a slide show i'm trying to customize that will change the delay time depending on the ID of the image that's active.

It's not working.  Right now, the image delay time doesn't change.  Also, the images change, but they blink, they don't transition smoothly, like they did before i customized the code.  not sure why.

I've attached the jQuery i'm using, along with the html for the div the slideshow is in.

Thanks for your help!!!
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript">

var delayTime = 1000;

function slideSwitch() {
    var $active = $('#slideshow');
	if ( $active.length == 0 ) $active = $('#slideshow DIV:last');
	var d = $('#slideshow img' ).attr('id')
	if (d == 'a' || d == 'b' || d == 'c' || d == 'z'){
		delayTime = 1000;	
	} else {
		delayTime = 5000;	
    var $next =  $ ? $
        : $('#slideshow DIV:first');


    $next.css({opacity: 0.0})
        .animate({opacity: 1.0}, 2000, function() {
            $active.removeClass('active last-active');

$(function() {
    setInterval( "slideSwitch()", delayTime );


<div id="slideshow">
                                                  <div class="active"><img id="z" src="images/rentals/D1.jpg" alt="" width="445" height="240" /></div>
