Sounds like your session ID is being lost when going from the basket page
to the checkout page. Take a look at yourcat/templates/components/cart, and
make sure that the form on that page contains this input:

<input type=hidden name=mv_session_id value="[data session id]">

Thanks Ed,

I checked and it is there. The problem does not occur with I.E. 5 or 6. I
think that Mike H is on the right track. The problem is how do I fix it?
