Z Index link boxes issue


If you go here:

You’ll see That I’ve got two sections with div hot spots on top of the background image, which changes on rollover to one with dots, you roll over the item, and a description box pops up. I’d like to use the transition on the 3rd section, the fade in through interactions, with the same div type hot spots I’m using on the top two sections, however, it seems like I can only have either the fading image, or the description pop ups. Is there a way to do both?

Any advice appreciated, thank you,
