Arangement of mc in Z depth

Hi all,

I have a slide show of images for my banner that is loaded through the use of a component in my library. The component merely swaps images with a fade out/in as a transition. Now, that is working fine, the thing that i am having a problem with is that i can not place an graphic/text on top of the component. I what the banner to be in the background. What do I have to add to the component to insure that it will always load in the back, not infront of the text, graphic, etc…
