    I would like a large image, divided into 6 different parts, and each part - when hovered over - has a specific description.
    I'm think a brain divided into 6 parts and each part of the brain contains information when hovered over... like a box with a description.
    Anyone know of any helpful tutorials/websites?
    Thank you for any help.

    You should get several responses for this.
    The Flash MX sites I use are:

    www.adobe.com/designcenter (good resource for professionals)
    www.flashadvisor.com (lot of good stuff for beginners)

    I don't use many others, but this one always seems to point me in the right direction.

    Good luck..........

    If each section of your image is irregular-shaped, then personally I would separate the pieces in Photoshop and save each part out as a separate image. Then, in Flash, create a button out of each piece, and put the informative text in the hover state of the button.

    Alternatively to creating buttons, you can create movie clips. For each movie clip, have a stop action in the first frame, then in the second frame, have your informative text (or even some kind of animation like the informative text sliding in/ fading in, etc). Then in the actions for the movie clip, tell the movie clip to play on(rollOver). And put a stop action in the last frame of the movie clip. Then you can also tell it to play on(rollOut) to go back to the first frame.

    For another neat effect. After you rollover and you tell the movieclip to play frame 2 (the frame that the information is actually on), you could put all of that text into like a text bubble, with the bottom corner at 0,0, and then have the movie clip position itself at the mouse position.

    I've seen that effect a couple of times, and it's kinda neat.

    you could do it quite easily using javascript if you were of a mind too!
    in fact it'd probably be easier in javascript
