Can you see if this works:

header("Set-Cookie: foo=bar");

If not, then check the configuration for IE6. I seem to recall hearing 
that cookies are disabled by default for sites that are not P3P 
compliant? Or, perhaps that was for third-party cookies only. At any 
rate, I seem to recall some significant change with IE6 in regards to 
cookies, so maybe you're experiencing that. My example above will give 
you the simplest test case for setting a cookie.

Good luck, and happy hacking.
