Create a variable link

Hi,

I must begin to say that I'm rather new in wtiting and using JavaScript. Now
I want to use JavaScript in a HTML-page. On the homepage is a link. Every
time the homepage is displayed the link must point to another target. I want
to realize this by having a lot of differet targetpages. The names of these
pages are p1001.htm until p<nnnn>.htm. At this moment the last is p1153.htm,
but the amount is increasing every day.
I have a file named "counter.txt" which contains one line with the string of
the last targetpage, at his moment "1153".

My idea is to have a JavaScript which:
1. reads the file counter.txt to determine the last available page
2. then takes at random one number between 1001 and 1153,
3. sets the HREF-link to page p<random>.htm.

I know it must be possible in JavaScript, but can anyone help me?

Thanks,
