Topic: Flash Streaming Audio

I hardly ever (read: never) use flash. The latest version I have is Flash 5. But I'm working on a project that incorporates an audio training session with accompanying slides. I've managed to create the slides and imported the audio but the file is humongous and takes forever to load, even on broadband.

Is there anyway to get around this? I don't know how to stream audio in Flash. Do I have to import the sound in order for the player controls to work with it? Please help if you can.
