An If function does something depending on a value of a variable.
Something like:

if (this variable is true) {
do something

Remember that the ones in parenthises "( )" are the cause,
and the ones in brackets "{ }" are the effect. So if you
want to go to frame 3 IF the variable "frame" is '1',

if (_root.frame == 1){

NOTE: See the equal signs (=) in the parenthises?
You can change that depending on what you want:
_root.frame == 1 -- If variable is EQUAL to one
root.frame <= 1 -- If variable is LESS THAN OR EQUAL TO 1
root.frame >= 1 -- If variable is MORE THAN OR EQUAL TO 1

If you want the effect to happen if the variable
ISN'T 1, add this:

if (!_root.frame == 1){

See anything different? the "!" in the parenthises.
The "!" means 'Is not'.
