If I recall correctly, there is no way to change Geocities CGI forms, but
you can go to http://www.cgi-resources.com and see the remotely hosted
section. There are lots of people who will allow you to use their scripts
(and modify them to include a redirect to a thank you page) in return for a
small advertisement on your pages. HTH
