Topic: first image index

Hi hoping someone can help me,

I've set up an html webpage and embedded a simple viewer gallery within it. that all works fine, but I don't understand how to get the "firstImageIndex" options to work - I've downloaded the example files but can't work out what i need to do to my page to make it work.

I'm not a coder, so my coding is pretty bad, but i don't actually understand what i need to put where (php/serverside script-wise)

I don't know if it is a problem because the viewer is embedded within a table or not:

<td rowspan="10" width="720" height="720" valign="bottom" align="left" bgcolor="#000000" >
         <embed src="../images/viewer.swf"
WIDTH=715 HEIGHT=715 align="absbottom" 
TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash"></embed>          </td>

anyhelp please?
