can someone fix this code for me?

   <SCRIPT>
    var ie = (navigator.appName.indexOf("Microsoft") != -1 && 
         navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Windows 3.1") == -1 );
    if (ie) self.location.href = window.open('http://www.angelfire.com/oh/asacui/a.html', 'Sample', 'toolbar=no,location=no,directories=no,status=no,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,resizable=no,copyhistory=yes,">


        else self.location.href = "http://www.angelfire.com/oh/asacui/a.html";

</SCRIPT>



-----------------------------
i basically want my page to have no directories or menu bar
as soon as you enter it.
i thought i would do this by popping up a new window without
the menu bar...
i would like to have no delay though...
no user interaction...
just a window that pops up by itself

p.s.
what is "copyhistory"?

Better?

var ie = (navigator.appName.indexOf("Microsoft") != -1 &&  navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Windows 3.1") == -1 );
if (ie)
  window.open('http://www.angelfire.com/oh/asacui/a.html', 'Sample', 'toolbar=no,location=no,directories=no,status=no,menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,resizable=no,copyhistory=yes,">
else
  location.href = "http://www.angelfire.com/oh/asacui/a.html";

Copyhistory? No idea.

i tried the copy history experiment and it doesnt work

thanks for the other pointer
.
one more question though:

page"a" pops up page"b"...
and i have 2 windows:
window 1 is "a" and window 2 is "b"

.how can i make
window 1 change itself to window "b"?

so i have
window 1 and 2 both showing "b"

OK, I never actually understood your question in the first, but I'm glad you figured it out.
