Hello the solution i have used before is :
to create a SESSION variable 'error'
on logincheck.php set this variable to desired string value if anything is incorrect.
else 'unset' this variable

and in main login page, below the submit button insert something like this

if(isset($_SESSION['error'])) { echo '
	<div id="error">'.$_SESSION['error'].'</div>';


Thanks vinayak...
its working...
