I don't think the splash page thing is a good idea at all. I once observed someone in my household go back to a site he'd been to before, and each time he assumed that the flash page was the entire website. It even had a "click here to enter" note on the page! That person had light to moderate internet browser experience which I suspect is typical of a noteworthy percentage of users.
