Embedded Smil Links Take 2 (oops)

Damn keyboard shortcuts...accidently mailed this off before I even began to explain the problem...sorry.

Anyways.

I've been working on a player for an embedded real player stream.  The idea is that the player will have two 'tabs' up top, linking 
to two seperate SMIL files. 

Simple enough.

the links are all set fine, but when you click on the links, the new SMI file won't link into the embedded real player, it seems to 
always want to spawn an outside player.  Of course, when the standalone player opens, the two links work fine, they replace 
themselves in the same player no problem...

I have a realtext clip that has the two links all setup up fine.  I've got my realtext file set to link to the two files as so:

<a href="http://www.myserver.com/test/freeshow.smi" show="replace"><b>Live Show</b></a>&nbsp;<b>\</b>&nbsp;
<a href="http://www.myserver.com/test/samples.smi" show="replace"><b>Samples</b></a>

I've also tried the following format as well:

<a href="command:openwindow(_self,  rtsp://realserver.example.com/comedy.rm)">

but the file still seems to want to link to an outside realplayer instance.

-----------

My question is:

Is it possible to link between different smi files in an embedded player?  If so, is there special link info you have to use?

My main rpm file to link into the embedded player uses the following format, which seems to work.

http://www.myserver.com/test/freeshow.smi?embed

Is there any other way I should be linking between the two smi files so that they remain embedded within the page?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanx
