Flash always likes to be on the top layer, so when you take away your
gif and the Flash loads, it won't let go of that layer. If you have access to
the .fla file, it would be easier to add the gif to that and make it the first
frame, then create an Action to go to the frame that the movie starts in
after a roll over.
