I think I really don't understand what do you want... hehehe :)
which is fine!

but take that code I sent ya... now I'll explain the functions... then tell 
me if I'm right:

function ShowHeader
{
         ?>
         <html>
         <title>Something</title>
         <body>
         <?
}

function ShowFooter()
{
         ?>
         </body>
         </html>
         <?
}

function ShowForm()
{
         global $SCRIPT_NAME:
         ?>
         <form ... bla bla bla action="<?=$SCRIPT_NAME?>">
         <input type=hidden name=action value="process-form">
         <?
}

function ProcessForm()
{
         if( !ValidateFormFields() )
                 return false;
         else
         {
                 if( !ExecuteDBInsert() )
                         return false;
                 else
                         return true;
         }
}

wouldn't that work?

there's no $done variable here... the return of the function is all you 
need... if it's true redirect, if not display error...
