AFAIK, all you've got to do is set an appropriate expiry on your cookie
(the default is 0, which really means "until the end of the UA

<?php setcookie('foo', 'bar', time() + 365 * 24 * 60 * 60) ?>

...would set a cookie 'foo' to the value of 'bar', which would expire in
a year, regardless of whether the users closes their browser (well,
unless they delete the cookie manually). Really, though, check out the
php.net manual page -- there are some much better examples there. :)
