Full flash site and SEO

I'm working on a full flash site and I'd like to make it more friendly to search engine spiders. What I'm thinking of doing is to create several html pages, which will be seen by the search engine spiders and non-flash browsers. People who have flash will then see the flash animation instead of the html content.

I'm told that I can have a particular html page be available at domain.com/about-us and then the flash version of the page would be available at domain.com/#/page=about-us by using swfaddress. This way we could use a single swf file for the entire site without chopping it up.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Is this a good way to go?

the urls with the hash mark are all the same url to the search engine:

to be search engine friendly you should use swfobject on your home page to serve the flash program and use the html version of the home page as alternative content.
make sure the html home page content has good navigation to the other pages of html content.
also be sure your html pages are essentially the same content as the equivalent flash pages.
