ok well this is what i have so far...

first page code:


$date = time();

$day = date('d', $date); 
$month = date('m', $date); 
$year = date('Y', $date);

//We then determine how many days are in the current month
$days_in_month = cal_days_in_month(0, $month, $year);

$current_month = date('F');


<script type="text/javascript">

function isValidDate()
    var now = new Date();

    //advance one day
    now.setDate( now.getDate() + 1 );

    var Day=document.getElementById('daysOfMonth').value;
    var Month=document.getElementById('monthOfYear').value;
    var Year=document.getElementById('year').value;

    var str = Month + " " + Day + " " + Year;

    var selectedDate= new Date(str);

    if(selectedDate < now)
        alert("You may not select dates in the past . . . only future days!!!");

 <select name="daysOfMonth" id="daysOfMonth" onchange="isValidDate()">
              <option><?php if($day == 32){$day = 1; echo $day;}else{ echo $day + 1;} ?></option>
                for($i = 1; $i <= $days_in_month; $i++)
                    echo "<option value=".$i.">".$i."</option>";
