Infinite menu links

I am brand new at this so please forgive me… I am working on the infinite menu that is on the tutorials pages here and I am able to make the animation work, however since you have to convert the whole thing including the text to one symbol in order for the animation to work I can’t figure out how to turn the text into buttons and make them links without having them stay stationary while the box around the text moves. Basically I need the text inside the menu to be buttons instead of movie clips so they can link my pages from my index page.
