    You need to use Actionscript on the buttons that will the link to your pages. Flash navigations are awful for many reasons and aren't being used in modern design for a good reason. I'd say drop flash all together. But if you want to use Flash (despite all the downsides) just google "Actionscript links tutorial".

    If you need anymore help, just let me know.

    I think a lot of template monster templates include a full HTML version do they not?

    They do but im not talking about a full flash site just the navigation. so there really is no load time on pages its less then a second to pop up and go.

    Load time isn't a downside. There are many - for example, this thread. You wouldn't be having problems if it was css

    You will need to use flash to edit it. Most likely it will be in actionscript and you will need to do a bit of studying to edit stuff. If its just text edits you are looking for you can always click your way through till you find the symbol in order to edit the text.
