Hi Christian,
There already is a couple of tutorials including a Demo Movie I made.
All can be found at The Flash Tech Resource under general graphics. Look
for Wait-for-Frame. The Flash Tech Resource is now located at
FlashCentral. Links below.

Inset a Goto (and Play?) frame action with the Wait for frame box
checked, in a key frame before your animated section begins.

Set Frame to point to a frame before the menu is drawn but after your
animated section.

Set extra frames to last frame of the movie:
(Total frames - Current Frame) = Extra Frames

The movie will still replay on going to back to it. But at the frame
with the wait-for-frame frame action, Flash will check and see if the
last frame of your movie has loaded and if has then it will bypass your
animation. In other words, if the movie is already completely loaded and
in cache, then the Wait-for frame will bypass your animation. Note, if
your movie is over 64K, Netscape 2 & 3 will not normally cache your
movie and therefore the movie will have to reload off the Web and of
course the wait-for-frame will not work.
