As the subject says, is there an easy way to include flash in the header content instead of images?

Turn the header image off at Atahualpa Theme Options -> Header -> Configure Header area and edit header.php

<!-- Header -->
<td id="header" colspan="<?php echo $cols; ?>">
Your code here -->
<?php bfa_header_config($bfa_ata['configure_header']); ?>
Or, Your code here -->
<!-- / Header -->

Something is amiss...I've tried this suggestion as well the others posted to get flash content to load before the default header so it loads first on the page. Unfortunately I can't get it to work. Maybe I've just been looking at the code too long today? Hopefully it's just some simple error. Please let me know and thank you.

AC_RunActiveContent.js is in the root directory and sfw is in the images folder
header image is turned off in dashboard
Here's the code in the header.php.

<!-- Header -->
<td id="header" colspan="<?php echo $cols; ?>">

<!-- Begin code for flash insertion for flash before header -->
<script src="AC_RunActiveContent.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">

<?php bfa_header_config($bfa_ata['configure_header']); ?>

Looks like the .swf ending is missing two times in your code, you have


instead of

<!-- / code for flash insertion -->

I think I have most correct but don't know what the classid is, what it applies to, and don't know where to find it. Could you help please.
Thank You.
