I need to get the value in a textbox into this PayPal button, replacing the static value GUID.

How do I do this?
<form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick">
<input type="hidden" name="business" value="foo@foobar.com">
<input type="hidden" name="lc" value="US">
<input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Inventory Manager">
<input type="hidden" name="amount" value="48.00">
<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="USD">
<input type="hidden" name="button_subtype" value="services">
<input type="hidden" name="no_note" value="0">
<input type="hidden" name="bn" value="PP-BuyNowBF:btn_buynowCC_LG.gif:NonHostedGuest">
<table>
<tr>
<td>
<input type="hidden" name="on0" value="GUID">GUID</td></tr>    <---------  data from textbox replaces GUID value
<tr>
<td>
<input type="text" name="os0" maxlength="200"></td></tr>
</table>
<input type="image" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_buynowCC_LG.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!"><img alt="" border="0" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif" width="1" height="1"></form>

By textbox do you mean a form input with text type (1 line) or a text area (multi line)?

one line... it contains a GUID which I need PayPal to return to me so I can encrypt some data using the GUID
