Auto-Submiiting a Form Question

Hi All,
I have a page where I want it to auto-submit without the user seeing it. What is the easiest way to do this? The reason I need to do this is because the php curl function won't operate properly if I re-post the page to itself and then pass on to a Paypal page. I now have two pages set-up but as the second page is purely functional (no use to the user) I don't want them to have to click another submit button. Is there an easy php or javascript solution to this? Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks,
D

to work timcottee code, u should write <form> attributes as well.

<body onload="document.Autofrm.submit();">
<form action="finalpage.htm" method="post" name="Autofrm">
<input type......................>
.....

</form>
</body>

gawai,

Indeed, though that was assumed (perhaps I shouldn't have).
