Can you do a "get" and a "post" at the same time? Tacking the lastname
onto the url as in "action=\"name.php?lastname=%s\"" is using a get
method, but your form is supposed to set lastname using the post method.
Is there some reason you want your script to set one version of lastname
and let the user type in a different version of lastname? If so try
using the post method with an <input type="hidden" name="otherlastname"
