PHP Session Forcing it to use cookies

Is there a way to force a PHP session to use cookies as opposed to just passing around the session id?  I'm not the administrator of the server, so i'm looking for a solution i can do right out of the php code.

[1] method 1
set a cookie using a php header function
example
header(cookiename=cookievalue, expires= saturday, 05-feb-00 22:03:38 GMT; path=/;domain=yourdomain.com);

[2] method 2 recommended is using set cookie
example
setcookie( "variable name", "variable value", time()+3600. "/", "domain name",o);
