Default Another Flash Form Question?????

Flash MX 2004 Professional (latest update applied)

I'm sure all you gurus out there are absolutely sick of reading flash form questions ... probably just as sick as I am of reading tutorials that I just can't get to work.

I am redesigning my new site completely in Flash (with an html-based sidekick site for dialup users). On the html site, I can easily get the small form to work - not so much luck in flash. I need to be able to pass form data (just a text input and combo box along with 2 static 'variables') to a php script and I simply cannot get it to work. This is a simple domain registration form. Nothing fancy, no validation ... The required elements (per html) are:

<form method="post" action="https://domain.com/billing/order/orderwiz.php">

// -------my two static entries that need to be passed------- \\
<input type="hidden" name="v" value="1">
<input type="hidden" name="submit_domain" value="register">

// -------domain name from user input (text input)------- \\
<input type="text" name="domain" value="">

// -------my combo box options------- \\
<select name="tld_extension">
<option value="com">.com</option>
<option value="net">.net</option>
<option value="org">.org</option>
<option value="info">.info</option>
<option value="biz">.biz</option>
<option value="us">.us</option>

<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Go!">

I would like this to send the user and his variables to the php page. I would post what I have tried, but I would like to see a fresh start on this instead of trying to fix my poorly written code. Find the format that I have been working with below (all previous AS stripped out) (please keep reponses simple and stupid - kinda the way I feel right now ) Your help is greatly appreciated

Download layout fla here.

OK, got it working, but my code is terrible and I know this is NOT a good way to do this. I do not want to keep this as a bad habit. Please d/l my fla and explain how I SHOULD do this. Like I said, it works and does exactly what I want it to do, but there is surely a better (cleaner) way. Thanks.
