Any menu in flash is easy, the only downside is that your visitors will have to have flash plugins.
Have a look at www.ultrashock.com for menu tutorials.

Not trying to sway you from flash at all though, it can be a great tool. Heck, even brothercake used flash in one of his new sites (http://www.morimarketdynamics.com/). Though, it isn't for navigation purposes...

I really love flash, though. I would eventually like to do a page entirely in Flash. I know this is extremely limited accessability, but it would be an optional version. http://www.blondergroup.com has a somewhat comparable example...but I want to do better.
What have you done as far as nav bars in the past that you found to be the best?

I'll come down a big "no" for flash navigation - for accessibility reasons; exactly the same reason why you hesitate at pure-JS navigation is why you should hesitate at pure flash navigation.
My favoured approached is dynamic menus based on semantic XHTML - you get menus for JS capable browsers but everything else can still see the navigation tree; like this - http://www.brothercake.com/scripts/listmenu/ (and if you look at them in moz with JS disabled the menus still work ;))

That is a fantastic example brothercake:thumbsup:
I need to spend more time on your site:)

Hey, that's pretty cool!
Do you have anything that drops down to reveal sublevels like mine does only in XHTML? I am trying to look for a vertical drop-down type...
Great site by the way! How long did it take you to learn all that?

you could try this one - http://www.gazingus.org/html/menuExpandable.html - it's not exactly the same as what you have, but it has the core functionality you want; the rest is just CSS.
