beginner trying to make Radiobuttons & onClick work together

P: 6
I'm looking to create a search box that creates different kinds of searches based on a radio button selection. The first stage of this process for me is setting it up so clicking on different radio buttons changes what the document.write() function displays (later I intend to replace the small bits of text/html I have document.write displaying to the code required for my searches). I have the radio buttons and the document.write() working fine but I'm not sure how to incorporate the onClick event. Here's my code so far, any suggestions would be welcome:

<script language="JavaScript">
function StringArray (n)
{
this.length = n;
for (var i =1; i<=n; i++)
{
this[i] = ' '
}
}
menuchoice = new StringArray(3)
menuchoice[0]='testing'
menuchoice[1]='<a href="http://www.cnn.com">cnn</a>'
menuchoice[2]='testing some more'
i = 0;
var displaycode=menuchoice[i];
function changesearch(n)
{
var displaycode=menuchoice[n];
}
</script>
<p>
Search Library:<br />
<a onClick="changesearch(0);"><input type=radio name="seachchoice" value=0>Catalog</a>
<a onClick="changesearch(1);"><input type=radio name="seachchoice" value=1>Webpage</a>
</p>

<script language="JavaScript">
document.write(displaycode)
</script>

Sorry about repeating myself, I was looking at an earlier post and had a question for someone who replied to it, ended up asking the same question that I did in this post.
