Flash Preloader High Bandwidth Problem

Hey guys,
Im in the middle of creating my flash portfolio website, well it’s pretty much done, but i’m having some annoying troubles with the preloader. The website is blank for a good 5 - 10secs before the pre loader appears, it shows at about 40%. I looked at the bandwidth profiler and the first frame is way over 200k. Does anyone know how i can lower the bandwidth from the first frame of my preloader?
