Whell, you could use that php script for getting file names and put links toward 
those files in a layer, which can be controled with java. If you are not a java 
you can do it with macromedia dreamweaver + extensions. I don't know java, but I 
made a layer based site at http://www.okspartak.f2s.com/moj/
The best thing is that extensions are free ! If you are not sure in the number of 
files, you can use those ext. to make a scrollable meny, which can be a very 
attractive detail.
