You  could use a plain form and JavaScript to do this.

It's fairly simple and it makes for nice little progress bars and graphs and other 
'realtime' info.

A few tips:

- first output the form (completely)
- use *implicit* flushing when outputting your JS.
- use a new <SCRIPT> .. </SCRIPT> part every time you sent commands (for Netscape)
- do all calculations and stuff in PHP, minimize your JS code to something like 
echo("document.myform.mytext.value = '" . addslashes($newval) . "';\n");
- try to do updates 'smartly', i.e. on when the values *really* change, and not with 
infinite speed.
