Here's one approach you could try.  Set a cookie, send a redirect, and see if 
you get the cookie back ...

Script 1 - cookiecheck1.php

header("Location: cookiecheck2.php");

Script 2  - cookiecheck2.php

if ($testcookie =="ok")
  print "This browser appears to handle cookies OK.";
  print "This browser either doesn't support use of cookies, 
    or has cookie use disabled.";
