Having trouble getting buttons to work on sliding panel

I am creating a presentation in Flash and I want the ‘control panel’ to slide in from the bottom when the bottom is scrolled over (similar to the OSX menu).

Now, I am able to get the panel to slide in and out, but I can’t get the buttons that sit on top (of the panel) to function. I’ll attach the SWF you’ll (hopefully)better understand what I mean. Just roll over the gold bar at the bottom. I need the buttons that sit on top of the slider to jump to different stops in the timeline. If you need to know the scripting I used, let me know. I’d appreciate any help…thanks!
