Try using a client-side imagemap, here is a small example:

In the script area:
function choose(buttonNum) {
   // hrefArray is an array of urls defined somewhere else.
   location = hrefArray[buttonNum];

In the body:
<!-- create the imagemap -->
<MAP NAME="buttonbar">
<AREA SHAPE="RECT" COORDS="10,10,49,49" HREF="javascript:choose(1)">
<AREA SHAPE="RECT" COORDS="60,10,99,49" HREF="javascript:choose(2)">
<AREA SHAPE="RECT" COORDS="110,10,149,49" HREF="javascript: choose(3)">
<AREA SHAPE="RECT" COORDS="0,0,159,59" HREF="javascript:choose(4)>
<!-- hook image to  -->
<IMG SRC="../images/tech/bar.gif" USEMAP="#buttonbar">

Please excuse any syntax errors (of worse) I haven't tested it.
