What I am setting up is a login page that after loging in a cookie is set from the username field.
I am using dreamweaver MX form all of my programing as I know very little about php.
This is what I have, and for some reason it don't work:

if (isset($HTTP_POST_VARS['user'])) {
setcookie("user", $HTTP_POST_VARS['user'], time()+86400*1);
