help with menu - Macromedia Flash Actionscript

Hi, I am using a drop down menu but am having difficulty with being able to navigate. Usually I would use the on(press) function but as this menu is made using actionscript there is no instance to select. Here is the script i am using: FRAME 1: menu1Links=0; set("_root.menu1.numLinks",menu1Links); menu2Links=7; set("_root.menu2.numLinks",menu2Links); menu3Links=3; set("_root.menu3.numLinks",menu3Links); menu4Links=2; set("_root.menu4.numLinks",menu4Links); menu5Links=3; set("_root.menu5.numLinks",menu5Links); FRAME 2: set("_root.menu2.link1.theTitle","Audison"); set("_root.menu2.link2.theTitle","DNA"); set("_root.menu2.link3.theTitle","EarthQuake"); set("_root.menu2.link4.theTitle","Hertz"); set("_root.menu2.link5.theTitle","Alarms"); set("_root.menu2.link6.theTitle","Custom Boxes"); set("_root.menu2.link7.theTitle","Miscellanious"); set("_root.menu3.link1.theTitle","Standard"); set("_root.menu3.link2.theTitle","Custom"); set("_root.menu3.link3.theTitle","Gallery"); set("_root.menu4.link1.theTitle","Dyno Days"); set("_root.menu4.link2.theTitle","Car Shows"); set("_root.menu5.link1.theTitle","History"); set("_root.menu5.link2.theTitle","Contact Us"); set("_root.menu5.link3.theTitle","Links"); stop(); I am stumped on how to do this. Any suggegstions/help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Daniel....

    Default Help with Menu

    Hey. I have a menu that i grabbed from a tutorial.


    [url]http://www.flashkit.com/tutorials/Actionscripting/Expert/Dynamica-Joshua_S-89/in[/url]
    dex.php

    All the buttons are currently "buttons" but i would like to make them into
    "MovieClip". I still want them to have the button action on them. The reason
    for this is if they are "buttons" i can not place an animation the goes
    smoothly on Rollover Rollout.

    I am obviously not great at ActionScript so i would really appreciate any help
    anyone would be willing to give. Thanks in advance.

    to download the files i have placed them on a server:
