Drowning in _root error for contact form

I’ve created a contact form using the tutorial

used …http://www.sephiroth.it/tutorials/flashPHP/email/page002.php

The problem is that I need to create this entire contact from in it’s three layer structure, inside a movie clip, instead of on the main timeline. Currently I have done that but suspect that the _root reference is where the problem is occuring.

Any help appreciated.
