That's indeed a very pretty loading display. But note that it's
animation-intensive, and so will be trying to share processor cycles with
the downloading stream... the smoother the loading display tries to be, the
longer it will take to actually load.

(A Shockwave or Flash presentation can start up pretty quickly, without

with just a simple movie that requires lighter media. You can keep
downloading the more complex things in the background. More info's
available by searching the Macromedia Flash Technotes with keyword "fast
