Dynamic Slideshow in HTML Widget--Error Help?

Ok, first off, I am not a strong coder or programmer.  I have the capacity to understand it, but not one to create it.  I need some help.

 

My users are very visual, and I am looking for ways to hilight content visually--with pictures, graphics, etc.  I've been exploring Java and DHTML a bit and added a basic slideshow with code I found here: http://www.ricocheting.com/code/javascript/html-generator/image-slideshow  I walked through the little wizard, copied the code and pasted it into the HTML widget and Viola, it worked.  I was then able to add a few tags to make it look like I wanted.

 

 

The basic slide show code works, but it isn't ideal for 2 reasons--the images don't rotate automatically (you have to click play) and you can't link them to other content (this is huge).  So I tried the Slideshow 2 code found here: http://www.ricocheting.com/code/javascript/html-generator/image-slideshow-v2  But when I paste it into an HTML widget, i get an error.  Specifically--'document.images.imgslide' is nul or not an object.

 

Any ideas?
