XML Image pre loading problems

I'm building a flash movie for something at work and im loading in some images using an XML file but when i use a preloader it only preloads the XML file (as in just the text inside) and not the images.

This causes the movie to start playing without having the images loaded.

Does anyone have any ideas about how i could get it to preload the contents/images being called in the XML file so it doesn't run as soon as the XML file is loaded.

Thanks in advance, Tom.

Ah yes, simply, you use the XML to get the URL of images and you then use flash to 'load' those images as if they were a movie. Using this method, you can create a little preloader.
