Sliding/scrolling menu

hi guys!!! i need your help, a client asks me if i could make a sliding/scrolling menu of images(sideways) with links and those images should dynamically loads from lets say a directory or something like that and can easily control/change image and url in a simple external text file( heres a sample of what it should look like: the bottom part.

hope someone could help me out here, or by leading me to a tutorial of how to achieve the sliding menu image that loads dynamically.

thanks in advance guys!! hoping to hear from you soon
