    Red face Blocking links in a DIV unless checkbox is checked

    What I would like to do is to force users to accept a "TOS" (Terms of Service) before allowing them to download files.

    I have this working with forms & buttons here:

    Here it is again, working in a different fashion.
    (This way is less desirable as the button simply fades and does not work - the user is not prompted [as above] to action and is left to guess why the link will not work.)

    What I would like to do is modify the first script so that it works on hyperlinks in a DIV.

    I have a number of files that users can select for free download, but want them to first accept my TOS - the disable method makes it hard for the user to understand what is happening (2nd method above); the 1st method makes it simple when the DIV lights up with instructions on click.

    HTML Code:
    <title>Force TOS Acceptance</title>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function CheckboxValidator(theForm) {
        if (
        theForm.toscheckbox.checked == false) 
         var txt=document.getElementById("myDiv")
             txt.innerHTML="<b style=\"color:#f00; font-size:18px; background:#ff0\">&uarr; You MUST check the box that agrees to our Terms of Service! </b>";
         return false;
        } else {     
         document.write('OK. We are satisfied. Good boy.');
         return false;
    <h1>Checkbox Must Be Checked for Form Submit</h1>
    <p>This script requires that a checkbox is checked before allowing a form to be submitted.
    <form action="../" onsubmit="return CheckboxValidator(this);">
        <p><input type="checkbox" name="toscheckbox" value="I agree to the Terms of Service."> <label>I agree to the <a href="http://companypolicies.org/terms-of-service" target="_blank">Terms of Service</a> and will do whatever you ask in the future forever and ever and so will my kids and...</label>
                <div id="myDiv"></div>
            <br /><input type="submit" value="Submit!"></p>
        <div id="myDiv"></div></body>
    Here is the DIV I would like to use:
    HTML Code:
    <div style="margin:10px 10px 20px 20px;">
    <table style="templatedownload">
    <td><a href="http://companypolicies.org/templates/downloader.php?f=Internet_Use_Policy.docx"  title="Download a sample Internet Use Policy in MS Word DOCX format"><img src="http://companypolicies.org/images/docx.png" border="0" /></a></td>
    <td><a href="http://companypolicies.org/templates/downloader.php?f=Internet_Use_Policy.docx"  title="Download a sample Internet Use Policy in MS Word DOCX format">Internet Use Policy Template MS Word DOCX File</a></td>
    <td><img src="http://companypolicies.org/images/doc.png" /></td>
    <td><a href="http://companypolicies.org/templates/downloader.php?f=Internet_Use_Policy.doc" onclick="javascript:_gaq.push(['_trackEvent','download','http://companypolicies.org/templates/downloader.php?f=Internet_Use_Policy.doc']);">Internet Use Policy Template MS Word DOC</a> <br /><em>(Older versions of MS Word) File</em></td>
    <td><img src="http://companypolicies.org/images/dot.png" /></td>
    <td><a href="http://companypolicies.org/templates/downloader.php?f=Internet_Use_Policy.dot" >Internet Use Policy Template Microsoft Word Template File (.dot)</a></td>
    <td><img src="http://companypolicies.org/images/rtf.png" /></td>
    <td><a href="http://companypolicies.org/templates/downloader.php?f=Internet_Use_Policy.rtf" >Internet Use Policy Template RTF File</a></td>
    <td><img src="http://companypolicies.org/images/pdf.png" /></td>
    <td><a href="http://companypolicies.org/templates/downloader.php?f=Internet_Use_Policy.pdf" onclick="javascript:_gaq.push(['_trackEvent','download','http://companypolicies.org/templates/downloader.php?f=Internet_Use_Policy.pdf']);">Internet Use Policy Template PDF File</a></td>
