......and other option:
to create a button with movieclips attached to the up/over/down/hit events. :)

Buttons are much more reliable if you want something that is rolloverable or clickable. Clip events are less flawless. It's also nicer (IMHO) to have the friendly Internet standarad hand come up when moved over a link, which is automatic with buttons in Flash

ended up puttin a button inside a move clip.. then placing the movie clip on the stage and using the onclip event command to make it fade in, go somewhere when clicked etc..

thx for the input! :)
