I wan to install osCommerce and in that case, I have to turn 
register_globals on.
I know what you are concerning, but i have got to do it if I want to 
install the program.
Otherwise, osCommerce keeps saying
"FATAL ERROR: register_globals is disabled in php.ini, please enable 

Thanks for your help.

 My $.02.

 Why would you want to do that? PHP turned them off for a reason.
 register_globals puts your web pages at the mercy of any script kiddie
 who wants to invade your site. If you are coding this way, stop. If
 you have packages that rely on register_globals, get some better
