    Do a search on "Flash Preloader tutorial".

    I take no responsibility for the above nonsense.

    one simple way is to create a very minimal looping movie instance. Something that will load quickly. Drop it in the first frame.
    Add this script to the first frame.
    Code:
    a=_root.getBytesTotal();
    b=_root.getBytesLoaded();
    if (b>=a){
    gotoAndPlay(2);
    }
    From there you can get more complex like updating a dynamic text field with the percentage loaded and such...

    Cheers,
    Simon
