the .swf should be in html space, like your images are. Incorporating flash
should not be a problem. If you can't access the flash directly via its own
url in your browser then its not going to appear when you embed it in a page

Bear in mind when using flash with links that IC takes care of the session
id when cookies are not enabled. Your flash links should do this too
otherwise you risk dropping sessions.
