just use a while loop:

// this loop will stop as soon as it find one.php
// and c will have it's index
while ($pages[c] != "one.php") {
	// normal link
print $pages[c]; // this will print one.php

avoid break statements when you can. They break the
flow of code and are usually avoided because they
can create obscure conditions:

for (...)
	if (...) {
	break;	// does this break the FOR or IF?

I think there were some other criticisms, but I don't
remember them.
