Unless I'm misunderstanding you, something like:


should do the trick.  No need to mess with meta refresh tags.  Have your 
form post to itself and at the top of the page do your data validation.  If 
the validation failed, set an error string and display it at the top of the 
form.  Otherwise, use the header() function to direct them to the next page 
on your site.  The only drawback is that if you need variables on the next 
page you'll have to pass them as an URL parameter...
