Passing a parameter to a function in JQuery

I have the following code. This is a function for a select-menu, which has several options (id: select1, select2, etc). I could copy the function for each select option, but I prefer to pass a parameter to it. I'm not really familiar with JQuery, so I wonder how to do this.
		$("#select1").change( function(){
		var selected = $("#select1 option:selected");		
		if(selected.val() == 0){ $("#warning").show(); }
		else { $("#warning").hide(); }

                $("select").change( function(){ // this will select all SELECTs on page                
                if(this.value == 0){ $("#warning").show(); } // compare actual object's selected value 
                else { $("#warning").hide(); }
