There's an onLoad event handler you put in the body tag.  The referenced
function executes after the page loads (text and graphics in, applets and
plugins started).  The function itself goes inside the head tags and can
reset the location.  If you want to add a delay, there's a timer you can
set.  Danny Goodman's "JavaScript Bible" is pretty much the standard
reference for JavaScript, but I found Nick Heinle's "Designing with
JavaScript" to be very readable.  (Okay, okay, it's actually fun to read -
for a computer book!)
