OK.  I would like to make a submit url web site like Submit-It or Broadcaster, but have the slightest clue how to program a script to take the information that the viewer enters into html forms and put them into hidden fields on the next page.  It seems simple right?  I just need an example of the script with the use of one URL submission from any search engine and I will award you the points.  Thanks.

The following is an example HTML page which will submit a URL to lycos:

<HTML>
<b>ADD YOUR SITE NOW:</b><br>
Lycos now offers instant spidering of your site.  Enter your URL below:

 <form action="http://www.lycos.com/cgi-bin/spider_now.pl" METHOD=GET>
      <table cellpadding=2>
      <tr>
      <td align=right><b>Enter your URL:</b></td>
      <td><input type="text" name="query" value="http://" size=50></td>
      <tr>
      <td align=right><b>Enter your email address:</b></td>
      <td><input type="text" name="email" size=50><em>required</em></td>
      <tr>
      </table>
  <center><input type="submit" value="Add Site"> <input type ="reset" value = "Clear Form"></center>
</form>
</html>

This is not the answer that I was looking for.  I need a script that allows me to have ONE html form entrance area on a seperate page.  Then, when you hit submit the information is sent to a script where the info is then put into hidden fields above submit buttons for each search engine, LIKE SUBMIT_IT!!!Then, the person click each submit button and they have then submitted the url info from ONE form to use with about one hundred search engines.
