Home Page Flash Intro and SEO

How can I build flash into homepage and make SEO friendly?

I am building a home page flash intro, and wanted to know if there is a way to externally link the flash and build page options for different
browsers based on software functionality using Progressive
Enhancement? If I use a flash intro I do not want the
engines to have to spider through that code, and it seems like
building different versions might be a work around.

Any suggestions?

Please someone reply for this also. I would like to know about how to do SEO of full flash sites?

You could try a 'flash-free' version, and on your home page have a link, something like:
Click Here For Plain Text Version. People who don't use flash, and spiders will follow it.. Just one options, I'm sure there are better ways/

If you use SWFObject to include the Flash, ordinary content - an image - is displayed first and Javascript writes the Flash object to the div only if Javascript is supported. No Javascript (search engines,) no Flash. No inline <object> tag, no embed tag, clean HTML. Additionally it kills the "Gray line" problem in IE.
