Drop down & Radio buttons

Hi,
     I am a small problem in HTML.
     I am a radio button & when one checks that button, he is supposed to enter some data from 3 drop down boxes & then proceed.
     But my requirement is such that unless that radio button is checked, the dropdown box is inactive, meaning the no data in the drop down can be viewed or selected. Only when the radio buttons r selected are the drop down data available for viewing & selection.
     Can anyone suggest a way out !

I don't think this will solve my problem.
Firstly, there r 2 RADIO BUTTONS. One when selected needs inputs from drop downs, which are populated from the database.
Now, mayb u can provide me with an accurate solution !

dynamically, here's a solution:

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
function enableSelect(){
if(document.theform.selectbox.disabled=true){
document.theform.selectbox.disabled=false;}}
</script>
<body>
<form name="theform">
<input type="radio" onClick="enableSelect();" name="radio1" value="Selection #2">Selection #1<br />
<input type="radio" onClick="enableSelect();" name="radio1" value="Selection #2">Selection #2<br />
<select name="selectbox" disabled="disabled">
<option value="1">option 1</option>
<option value="2">option 2</option>
<option value="3">option 3</option>
</select>
</body>
