mouseover help

I am using a really basic mouseover script to change a linkable image when the mouse runs over it. The script works fine on my local computer but after I upload the page to my host it takes ages for the image to swap to the second image. I have tried using a Javascript but get the same results.
Here is the code that I am using now. I thought it would be best as it was the most basic;
<a href="page1.htm"><img src="graphics/image1.jpg" border="0" onmouseover="src='graphics/image2.jpg'" onmouseout="src='graphics/image1.jpg'"></a>

Is this just a problem with my host or my connection or is there a faster way to do this.
Thanks.

I would guess, the image isn't being loaded until the mouseover event is triggered. There are probably ways to preload the image, but I don't know much about javascript to tell you the answer.

Try loading the image in javascript, on document load.
put something like this in the head section of your document:

<script type="text/javascript">

preloadImg = new Image()
preloadImg.src = "yourimage.png"
</script>
