Unhappy Flash Question

Ok, all you flash pros:
I need to know how to make a screen that says "loading" at the first of a flash movie, that waits for the whole movie to load before continuing and playing the actual movie.
If any of you guys know what im talking about/how to do it, please reply.

Basically the idea is:

Put ur "Page is loading..." on frames 1 and 2
On frame 2, use the action "ifloaded" (i think that's what it's called) and if it is loaded, proceed to frame 3 and play, if it isn't loaded, go back to frame 1 and play.
This will make it so that the user will go back and forth between 1 and 2 until the movie is loaded and then it plays. I probably made no sense whatsoever but I'm pretty sure you can find a tutorial at www.flashzone.com . Good luck

Thanks, man. That is exactly what I needed. Now I can go on and make all my pro flashpages for my site. I've been stuck on that one item forever.
Thank you for your help.
