Link to a frameset document. Have the documents you want to load as the default pages for the frames (i.e. specify their urls in the src attributes of the <frame> tags).

Frames cause a lot of problems though - why do you think you need to open multiple pages at once?

Here is the answer:

<html>
<head>
<title></title>
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
var urls=new Array("http://www.yahoo.com","http://www.google.com","http://www.cnn.com","http://www.test.com","http://www.mozilla.org");
function openwindows(){
 for(i=0;i<urls.length;i++){
  window.open(urls[i],"page"+i);
 }
}
// -->
</script>
</head>
<body>
<a href="#" onClick="openwindows();">Open Windows</a>
</body>
</html>

I shortened the code slightly by putting all the addresses in to an array, and then going through a loop to open up the windows one by one.

I have only tested this in Internet Explorer 6.
