You can define the value of ANY <input /> element present on an HTML form. If you don't understand how the <input /> element works, then I highly suggest you drop everything you're trying to do and take a few tutorials. It will save you an immense amount of pain in the very near future. w3schools.com is always good one for starters:
I have read through asp 3.0 for beginners, its just that every time i do something my brain keeps going back to asp.net
also i dont want to restrict the selection but did figure out the issue that i only had 1 radio button.
I really dont want to start re reading a book until i get to the point that it answers my question, I will only be on asp as long as it takes me to redo the site in dot net so i really dont want to study asp 30 more than i have to
so if anyone could give me a boost so to say i would appreciate it

To more directly answer your question, you should be wrapping your input controls in a form. By specifying the target and type of form, you can control where the page posts back and whether it will use GET (querystring) or POST (post variables) to transmit the values of the elements inside the form.

Regardless of whether you use POST or GET, you can access the variables by way of the Request.Form collection (Request.Params in .NET):
Understanding how forms work will also GREATLY aid your ASP.NET endeavors as the entire platform revolves around handling input from forms. This is how things such as viewstate and server controls function under the hood...
