I've searched many times for a way to do this, but I've always come to the conclusion that I need learn FLASH - or embed a java applet of some sort.

Kind regards.

This is not possible via any "standard" means.
HTTP requests allow you to send multiple files at once, but each must belong to a separate <input> box.
Seeing how that works, browsers require that each <input> box be filled in manually, one file at a time.

And because no decent browser will ever give a script the type of access it would require, you are forced to write client-side applications to do this.

Flash might be able to handle stuff like this. Don't know Flash well enough to say for sure. I do know it can send single files.
