That seems much more complicated than I need.

I understand that the POST operation stores the data from the form in
the message headers... I just need to know which headers, so I can use
that information to write my own... I basically want to make it seem as
if the $failure var was POST'ed back to the page.

I'm having NO luck whatsoever with the HTTP RFC's... too thick =>

How about using javascript?

For example

<form name="loginFailure" action="login.php" method="POST">
        <input type="hidden" name="failure" value="true">
                [...any other data you want...]

<script language="Javascript" type="text/javascript">

        // or document.forms['loginFailure'].submit();
// -->

It's untested, but you get the idea.
