    external movie loads in Netscape but not IE help!!

    please help me real quick? I made an eyeball movie for my website that loads after the _root movie loads. There's a button at half alpha of it that loads the eyeball when you rollover it. It works perfect in Netscape but doesn't work at all in IE. i tried it on my Mac IE and on my PC IE too! below is my code:
    Code:
    on (rollOver) {
    	loadMovieNum("eye.swf",1);
    	_root.play();
    }
    I put the _root.play(); in there so the main movie goes forward one frame and i get rid of the the loader alpha button. below is a link to my site so you can see it, but again, it only works in netscape it seems and i can't figure out why.

    When all files dont reside in the same folder there can be problems, as relative links are generally relative to the html documants location and not the where the Flash file is. Which can be quite confusing.
