There're so many tutorials out there that teach you how to do it.

This is a nice tutorial that might step by step help you to put ajax into your current form

Follow this:

1. Add a <div> to your html page to display the message:

   <div id='msg'></div>

2. Include jquery.js (replace with your jquery.js location):

   <script src="../JS/jquery.js"></script>

3. Add this JS script:

   <script>
    $(document).ready(function (){
         $('form[name=form]').submit(function (){
                $.post("/form.php", $('form[name=form]').serialize(), function(data){$('#msg').html(data);});
                return false;
         });
    });
