Can someone help with a script that rotates a .sfw banner ad

below is the script I am using on my website in the top banner ad space. The ad rotates and works, but the WHOLE page refreshes every time the image rotates to the next. I am adding the code below. if someone can figure out how to stop the page from refreshing and only have the banner ad refresh, I would really appreciate it.

<center>
<div id="BannerSpace"></div>
</center>
<script language="JavaScript">
<!--
// Create arrays to contain all the values
// for links and image locations
var link = new Array
var image = new Array
//number of milliseconds between rotations
var refreshCount = 20000; // 20 seconds

var last_num = -1;
function setAdvertisement()
{
var random_num = image.length;
// Create a random number between 1 and last number
while (random_num > (image.length -1) || random_num == last_num)
random_num = (Math.round((Math.random()*(image.length-1))))

var str = "<a href='" + link[random_num] + "' target='_blank'><object onClick='javascript:window.open(\"" + link[random_num] + "\", \"_blank\");' classid='clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000' codebase='http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,19,0' id='BannerAd' width='468' height='60'><param name='movie' value='" + image[random_num] + "'><param name='bgcolor' value='#FFFFFF'><param name='quality' value='high'><param name='allowscriptaccess' value='samedomain'><embed type='application/x-shockwave-flash' pluginspage='http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash' name='BannerAd' width='468' height='60' src='" + image[random_num] + "' bgcolor='#FFFFFF' quality='high' allowscriptaccess='samedomain'><noembed></noembed></embed></object></a>";

BannerSpace.innerHTML = str;
window.setTimeout(setAdvertisement, 20000);
}

setAdvertisement();
