Well you need to convert all of your graphics to symbols (insert > convert to symbol > graphic) then work with a symbol on each layer(insert > layer). Dont forget to lock the layers your not editing so you wont accidentally add a symbol to the wrong layer.

put each symbol on its own layer. as far as i know flash wont tween w/ more than 1 symbol per layer. be sure to use motion tween if you have symbols and shape tween if its just plain vector stuff. good luck.

yup, only one sybol per layer. go into flash help and do all the tutorials there, that'll give you an idea of how to tween and do all the basics.
