I'm trying to alter it to work with another post action [code 2] but can't get it going

=========================code 1
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">

input.text { width:150; text-align:left; }
input { width:150; text-align:center; }
//-->
</style>
</head>
<body>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
<!--
function copydata() {

    myapple = "0.7.1.0.5.11.1.0.1.4"
    document.google.q.value      = document.myinput.search.value;
    document.teoma.q.value       = document.myinput.search.value;
    document.lycos.query.value   = document.myinput.search.value;
    document.apple.myapple.value = document.myinput.search.value;
   
    }
//-->
</SCRIPT>
<form name="myinput">
<input class="text" type="text" name="search" size="20" maxlength="255">
</form>
<form method="get" name="google" onSubmit="return copydata()">
<input type="submit" value="Google Search" onclick="this.form.action='http://www.google.com/search'">
<input type="hidden" name="q">
</form>
