Newbie question: How can I create a "tiled" background? - Macromedia Flash

How can I create a "tiled" background from a GIF image in FlashMX? I have searched and searched on Google, but haven't found the answer. I would not imagine this would be too hard. Help! (I am very familiar with html, javascript, asp, vbscript - if this helps.)...

    1) Draw a rectangle which covers the whole movie area in the bottommost
    layer of the movie, use any colour you want but don't use any line colour.

    2) Put the GIF image in some layer above the rectangle.

    3) Break apart the GIF image.

    4) Select the Dropper tool and click the image that you have breaked apart.

    5) Now you should see the Paint Bucket tool image (with a lock image)

    6) Click the rectangle and you have the backround you wanted.

    7) Delete the image (don't delete it from the library)

    ps. I have Flash 4 but I suppose that you can do this with MX?
