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

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.
