Flash - Slider

Please look at www.davispipe.com. Note how the main page uses a rotation of 6 images in the "main" space, smaller versions of all 6 are at the bottom. Note that the live one is partially obscured by a partially opaque area with the text. This is done with Flash.

Note also the menu, blue background to the right. Note how when a mouseover appears on a menu item, the background under the "hovered over" item is dark blue where the effect initially slides to the right. The menu is also Flash.

I want to replace both Flash with non-flash techniques for the obvious reasons. I can probably just do the menu by "manually" creating a similar effect on a mouseover but an exact replica would be nice.

Can anyone recommend Jquery or other "Sliders" that will accomplish what is done here?

Thanks
