Arrrghhh and XML

Im going mad and have been trying to sort this out for three days without success…I have used the kirupa XML photogallery tutorial to build a gallery in flash. It works exactly how it should however the gallery always starts on image no 1 and I would like to make buttons that go to different parts of the XML data ie different images…IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE???..if anyone could offer a glimmer of hope I would be forever in debt…mamamasonic
