Ok, first...

I am doing a website that for budget and time sake can not be done entirely in Flash. So... What I have done is create the homepage in flash and the rest in HTML.

However I want to make my navigation and header to the HTML pages flash as well. So with that said here is my question.

Can I control the movie on the homepage via a button on a different page. For example, When you click the Home button I want it not only to take them to the homepage but start playing the movie on the homepage at a certain frame.

I have a few things that happen when you first visit the page that I don't want to have to show over and over each time the user returns to the home page.

So, from one swf on a different page than the main sfw, can a button control the timeline? If yes, any help would be great.
