You're right. Its all under the INSERT menu in Dreamweaver. Personally, I would avoid using Flash buttons unless you're forced to. The last thing you want is someone without flash to not be able to navigate the site. I know that 99% of computers have it, but that doesn't mean they're all using the most up-to-date version...in which case you'd have to upgrade to navigate your site. Also, I'm not a fan of Flash buttons because it leaves text readers for the blind out of the loop. Flash is like icing...a little on the top is nice, but too much will make you barf.
In code view, this is how you embed flash... This code is courtesy of Macromedia, and is what I've always used to embed Flash elements in HTML:
WIDTH="550" HEIGHT="400" id="myMovieName"><PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="myFlashMovie.swf"><PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high><PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#FFFFFF><EMBED src="/support/flash/ts/documents/myFlashMovie.swf" quality=high bgcolor=#FFFFFF WIDTH="550" HEIGHT="400"
NAME="myMovieName" ALIGN="" TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash"
Surfpark is right though, I would also avoid using Flash buttons in an HTML page. Reserve flash to animations, video, music, web banners, etc.
