Help my friend make a big splash!

A friend has a really big event that is very important to her career, and she wants to replace her website home page with a splash screen displaying all the information about this very special event. I have a question about how to accomplish this.

The splash screen is designed, and I want to put it up on her site but I'm not sure about a few things.
1. A timed re-direct to her old home page won't work, because there is too much information about the event on the splash screen, and it would be hard to gauge how long people need to spend on the page, so I plan to just have a link to her existing home page on the splash screen.
2. Her current home page is just index.html. Do I just rename that something else, and call the splash screen index.html?
3. Is there anyway to do this so that if you have been to the splash screen once, and then you click one of her old 'home' links from inside the existing website, it directs you to the existing (i.e. old) home page, not the new splash screen every time? I definitely don't want to have to go through her site and change every link to the home page to accomplish this.
p.s. I'm aware that some people despise splash screens, no need to go there with your comments.
