Default SWFobject2 alt HTML site redirect help...

Hey all
I am still pretty new to the whole SWFObject thing
and I have this code that is working great.
but I have no idea where to put (or how to put) a link to an alt site
for pc's and devices that are not Flash enabled...

this is my current working code.
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en" xml:lang="en">
		<title>version 3</title>
		<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
		<script type="text/javascript" src="swfobject.js"></script>		
		<script type="text/javascript">			
			var flashvars = {};
			var params = {
				bgcolor : "#000000",
				allowFullScreen : "true",
				scale :"noscale",
				allowScriptAccess : "always",
				swLiveConnect : "true"				
			var attributes = {};
			swfobject.embedSWF("preview.swf", "myContent", "100%", "100%", "9.0.0", "expressInstall.swf", flashvars, params, attributes);
		<style type="text/css">
            html, body, div {
                height: 100%;
                overflow: hidden;
            body {
                background: #000000;
                font: 86% Arial, sans-serif;
                margin: 0;                
            #main {
                height: 100%;
	<body bgcolor="#000000">		
		<div id="myContent">
			<h1>Alternative content</h1>
			<p><a href="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer"><img src="http://www.adobe.com/images/shared/download_buttons/get_flash_player.gif" alt="Get Adobe Flash player" /></a></p>
and say I want the user to be redirected to the address below if on a iPhone
or some other thing that does not support flash.

simplest way is to include the link in the alt content section, something like:
<body bgcolor="#000000">		
		<div id="myContent">
			<h1>Flash is needed</h1>
			<p>If you do not have a Flash Player you can visit this link,
<a href='http://www.myHTMLsite.com'>html site</a><br />
for the plane html version of the site</p>
so if they don't have flash they will see that message and link.
