I'm trying to prevent the alert box in OnChange from firing when the page loads and a user selects his or her first option.  After the first one selection, I do want the alert in the onChange to fire.  This code doesn't seem to be working.  Help?

<script language="javascript">
function save(i) {

      if (i != 0) {
      alert("****" + i);
<form name=form>
<select name="main" size="10" style="width:250px;" onchange="save(i);">
<option value=test></option>
<option value=test2></option>
