    <tr>

    <td bgcolor="#acc6dd" width="183" height="17" class="ne"><div align="center"><strong>&nbsp;member

    I'm not sure I understand this ...
    Your form action is nothing - <form action="">

    Your form is going to have to post to a script (either PHP or Perl/CGI).

    The script will take care of the login validation and checking, then it will set a cookie or something and direct the visitor to the next step.

    Once the visitor logs in, what is supposed to happen?

    To do what you're talking about, you'll need some sort of member registration/authentication script. Once you have that, you'll add the path to the program in the form tag's "action".

    If you don't have a script already, you won't be able to have a login. Check out something like http://php.resourceindex.com
