Use :

            $("form").submit(function() {
                  alert("You may not submit this now.");
                  return false;
            });

tets page :


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<script language="javascript" src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.4.2.min.js"></script>
<script language="javascript">
	$(document).ready(function() {
		$("form").submit(function() {
			alert("You may not submit this now.");
			return false;
		});
	});
</script>
</head>
<body>

<input type="submit" value="go" />
</form>
