image viewer

Hello,

I have the following in an HTML table:

<td align="center" valign="middle">
                            Our Services<br />
                            <br />
                            &nbsp;<img src="art/webWorld.jpg" name="slide" width="120" height="100" alt="" onclick="location.href='forms/Vison.aspx'"
                                style="cursor: pointer;" />
                            <br />
                            <br />
                            <script type="text/javascript">
<!--
                                //variable that will increment through the images
                                var step = 1
                                function slideit() {
                                    //if browser does not support the image object, exit.
                                    if (!document.images)
                                        return
                                    document.images.slide.src = eval("image" + step + ".src")
                                    if (step < 3)
                                        step++
                                    else
                                        step = 1
                                    //call function "slideit()" every 2.5 seconds
                                    setTimeout("slideit()", 2500)
                                }
                                slideit()
//-->
                            </script>
                        </td>

It works very well. I would however like an additional feature. I would like to tie the image to a differant link everytime it cycles. Each image should have it's own seperate link. Additionaly I need to set a text field below the image with a uniques description based on the image.

Thank you
