How to keep a flash banner playing when user goes to another page

Hello, I'm a flash newbie and I have a problem with a web page. I have created a flash banner on request of my client, but I need it to keep on playing when the browser goes to another page on the site.

If you want to take a look, here's a very rough draft:

When I click the link on the index page, the movie starts again. I need it to keep on playing from the same frame it was playing before the click.

I know I need to use shared objects for this, and I've found threads about it even here on Experts Exchange (for instance http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Miscellaneous/Q_23018279.html), but none of them goes into detail and I'm a total newbie with this so I'd need quite a detailed tutorial...

Unless there is a better way not involving shared objects?

The problem you may fix by implementing HTML Frameset

http://htmlhelp.com/reference/html40/frames/frameset.html

Create index.html as implement Frameset with two farmes banner.html and content.html

That will fix your problem

But aren't frames quite deprecated? And can I create frames with no border and which are not resizable?

Ok, I've found a way to go without borders. It should work, let's see if I can get it done.
