The action for the form should not be pointing to a text (txt) file.
 http://MsKat.lunarpages.com/cgi-bin/cgiecho/template1.txt

Also, avoid using capital letters

You do not need the full url (http://mskat.lunarpages.com/) just use cgi-bin/cgiecho/whatever.cgi

To help you further, we need to know what the script is like.

Kat, I couldn't get to the page, so I don't know what it entails.  I have a program that will whip up a custom cgi script for any html file.  All that's needed is the form page, and a few server settings (location of perl and sendmail for mail forms) and we can customize acknowledgement, messages, refresh page, etc.  It'll even send an email to the user if you want it to.  Let me know.
