try this...this code allows you to check and uncheck all checkboxes

<!--- place above checkbox--->
<SCRIPT>
function checkBoxes (form, check) {
var flagThis = false;
  for (var c = 0; c < form.elements.length; c++)
      flagThis = false;
      if (form.elements[c].type == 'checkbox')
        form.elements[c].checked = check;
        flagThis = true;
      if (flagThis)
        form.elements[c].checked = enabled;
}
</SCRIPT>


<!--- to check all checkboxes --->
<INPUT TYPe="CHECKBOX" NAME="applyToAll" ONCLICK="checkBoxes(this.form, this.checked)" VALUE="yes">

That's odd, well try this piece of code. As this works just fine in my browser. If you have SP2 for XP then allow blocked content.

thanks, second code works fine, and nope I did not install SP2 yet, I'm in the middle of a project, not taking any risks.
now, this works fine to select all but to if i select a few and want to deselect them, i have to click your check box twice!
is there a way around this?
thanks
