Place a movie clip on a layer near the top of your file. In the MC,
place a message that reads: "This movie requires version 4 or higher
of Flash player to work correctly..." or similar. Name the instance,
then on the same frame use a Set Property command to set the alpha
of the MC to 0% - all version 4 players will render your warning
message invisible (probably - hopefully - before it even appears),
while version 3 players will ignore the Set Property and leave
the message visible.
