Four choices:

1) Have the first cgi generate a page that contains:
<body onLoad=second.submit()>
<form name=second action=http://secondform.cgi>
</form>
This does require a JS enable browser

2) have the first script generate:
Location: http://secondscrip.cgi\n\n

3) first script generate, in its result:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url=http://secondscript.cgi>

4) Only required if you can not modeify either of the scripts to do the above:
have the submit button invoke a new page that has two frames or windows, where each is loaded with the first or second script.

I should add that the reason that these games are required is that the http protocol only supports one connection at a time so one page can not invoke two scripts, without playing these games.

So, eiher do them in sequence, solutions 1,2 and 3 or concurrenbtly by making a second page with option 4.

With Proposed Answer, you can make first script to return this two lines (2nd line must be empty):

Location: secondscript.cgi?variable=value&var2=val2\n\n

You need to put there all variables that needs secondscript and values entered by user in first form.
This will call 2nd script automaticaly
and as a result browser will go to url returned by secondscript.
