are you running php4.1.2 or above? i know it is
slightly different to deal with the form variables if
u running such versions of php.  For example. u have
to echo $HTTP_POST_VARS['first'} which is the form
variables.  But i know that if u use the php 4.0.6 or
below. u don't have to do so. just simply use $first
or $last.
