I have noticed several things from just a quick look at your code:

 1. If your not able to post any data/receive any variables from your form
when the submit button is clicked, you could have register_globals set to
Off.  Here is a example form used for that situation:

<form name="form1" method="post" action='<?php $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] ?>'>
          <center><input type="submit" name="register" value="REGISTER">

Please note that I used $_SERVER instead of PHP_SELF alone, and note the use
of the single quotes.  This is done when register_globals is turned off,
which I have learned is the best way to write your scripts (thanks to the
other guys & gals on this discussion board).

2. Using
                if (isset($submit)) { stuff......}

is another thing i've been taught to do, rather than if($submit).

3. You haven't given a variable name to your submit button:
                <input type="submit" value="Enviar"></form>

give the submit button a name="submit" and you will actually have a variable
which your script can pick up.  Otherwise nothing will happen.
