here's the html
[code]
<FORM METHOD="post" ACTION="do_redirect.php">    

Popular downloads
     <select name="locate">
    <option value="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/triggerpages_mmcom/flash.html/"> Macromedia FlashPlayer </option>
    <option value="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/win.html/"> QuickTime </option>
    <option value="http://adobe.com/support/downloads/"> Adobe downloads </option>

    <INPUT TYPE="submit" NAME="submit" Value="Go"></p>
    </form>
[/code]

here's the re-direction PHP page
[code]
<?

if ($_POST[locate]=="")
{
  header("Location: redirect_form.html");
  exit;
} else {
  header("Location: $_POST[locate]");
  exit;

Hi.
Probably a <FORM target="_blank" .... would do the trick.

Or make a js function, that will be called onSubmit.
It will check wich option in the dropdown is checked then pass it to window.open.
