    Here's the html, it gets concatenated 5 times (due to a page limit I have set up).

    Code:
    $h=1;
    $i=1;
    $j=1;
    $k=1;
    $l=1;
    
    // the html is generated within the php here
    
    $my_posts .= '  // this concatenates the list
    
    <div class="blockdetails">
    	<div class="my_post">
    		' . $story_post . ' // this is where the posted story goes
    	</div>
    	<div class="comments">
    		' . $commentername . ' ' . $comment . '  // this is where "old" comments get listed
    		<li id="update' . $k++ . '"></li> // this is where live comments go
    		<div class="linebreak">
    			<form action="#" method="post">
    				<textarea class="commentbox" name="comment" id="comment' . $h++ . '"></textarea>
    				<input type="hidden" name="d_id"  id="d_id' . $i++ . '" value=' . $d_id . ' />
    				<input type="hidden" name="mem_id" id="mem_id" value=' . $id . ' />
    				<input type="submit" class="submit' . $j++ . '" value="Comment" />
    			</form>
    		</div>
    			<div id="flash' . $l++ . '"></div> // don't worry about the #flash part
    		</div>
    	</div>
    </div>
    ';
    
    // heres the actual html
    <html>
    <head>
         // the current 5 scripts go here 
    </head>
    <body>
         <?php echo $my_posts; ?>
    </body>

    no, I mean the actual html once it's rendered - just put 5 posts onto your page, hit "view source" and copy the html

    I think this will probably do it. As long as your html structure stays the same, you should be able to use just this function, and give all your submit buttons a class name of just plain "submit". You said not to worry about the "flash" so I left the code in there...

    Code:
    $(function() {
    	$(".submit").click(function() {
    
    var udid=this.parentElement.parentNode.previousElementSibling.id;
    var commid=this.parentElement[0].id;
    var posid=this.parentElement[1].id;
    var memid=this.parentElement[2].id;
    
    
    	var post_id = $(this.parentElement[1]).val();
    		var member_id = $(this.parentElement[2]).val();
    		var comment = $(this.parentElement[0]).val();
    		var dataString = 'post_id='+ post_id + '&member_id=' + member_id + '&comment=' + comment;	
    		if(comment=='') {
    			alert('Please enter a valid comment 1');
    		} else {
    			$.ajax({
    				type: "POST",
    	  			url: "commentajax.php",
    	   			data: dataString,
    	  			cache: false,
    	  			success: function(html){
    					$("li#"+udid).append(html);
    				 	$("li#"+udid+" li:last").fadeIn("3600");
    					$("#flash1").hide();
    					document.getElementById(posid).value='';
    	   				document.getElementById(memid).value='';
    					document.getElementById(commid).value='';
    					$("#"+udid).focus();
    	  				$("#flash1").hide();
    	  			}
    	 		});
    		} 
    		return false;
    	});
    });

    ... although thinking about it more it would probably be easier (and more robust) to give each of your buttons a unique id, echoed out from the post count like this:
    Code:
    <input type="submit" id="button' . $j++ . '" class="submit" value="Comment" />
    and then use that number to make your references in the function, like this:

    Code:
     <script type="text/javascript" >
    $(function() {
    	$(".submit").click(function() {
    	var num=this.id.replace("button","")
    		var post_id = $("#post_id"+num).val();
    		var member_id = $("#member_id"+num).val();
    		var comment = $("#comment"+num).val();
    		var dataString = 'post_id='+ post_id + '&member_id=' + member_id + '&comment=' + comment;	
    		if(comment=='') {
    			alert('Please enter a valid comment '+num);
    		} else {
    			$("#flash"+num).show();
    			$("#flash"+num).fadeIn(2400).html('<span class="loading">Loading Comment...</span>');
    			$.ajax({
    				type: "POST",
    	  			url: "commentajax.php",
    	   			data: dataString,
    	  			cache: false,
    	  			success: function(html){
    					$("li#update"+num).append(html);
    				 	$("li#update"+num+" li:last").fadeIn("3600");
    					$("#flash"+num).hide();
    					document.getElementById('post_id'+num).value='';
    	   				document.getElementById('member_id'+num).value='';
    					document.getElementById('comment'+num).value='';
    					$("#comment"+num).focus();
    	  				$("#flash"+num).hide();
    	  			}
    	 		});
    		}
    		return false;
    	});
    });
    </script>
    one thing I noticed - you haven't given the member id field in your form a unique like you have for the rest of the fields - for it to be legal html (and for the above code to work) you will have to do that.

    Thanks you!!!!... that worked perfectly. At first I thought my original way to try to do the commenting system (ala jquery) would have been a more elegant solution... but now, I'm thinking that w your help, this may be the more elegant way! Thanks again...

    A couple of things I could probably search and figure it out but if u know off the top of your head, that'd be great... For some reason what I type in the text area, stays in the text area even after I click the button. Also, I never see the "Loading Comment..." from #flash, I'm not sure if its cuz its loading too fast, is there a way I could slow it down to see if it is working?

    the 2400 in the line
    Code:
    $("#flash"+num).fadeIn(2400).html('<span class="loading">Loading Comment...</span>');
    refers to the milliseconds it takes to fade in, which comes out at 2.4 seconds - certainly enough to see it. you can crank it up to check, but I suspect it's something else...
