just place the animation in the begining of the movie and have it set to check and see if the pre loader is loaded if it is just have it go to a frame. Make the pre loader a movie clip. at the end of the first movie clip put an action to tell the level0 goto next frame and play where you have a copy of the movie clip with out the command at the end and a regular pre loader using the if frame is loaded command.
