You can create a blinking/moving graphic using an Animated GIF.  There are several graphic editors that will do it.  I use PaintShop Pro and GIF Construction Set.  

When the user enters something wrong, place the image next to the fields that are wrong.  

You could use DHTML/Javascript to make a hidden GIF image visible (this would be a client side solution), or have the server regenerate the page with the GIF images inserted next to the incorrect fields (server side solution).
