Thanks for your help. Now it works with the following form:

<form action="[area href="checkout"]" method="post">
<input type=hidden name=mv_form_profile value="check_this">
<input type=hidden name=mv_action value="return">
<input type=hidden name=mv_failpage value="checkout-step1">
<input type=hidden name=mv_success_href value="checkout-step2">

But when I am returned to the same page again in case of an error the 
entered values are not displayed. So I have to enter all values all over 
again. My form compontents look like this:

<input type=text name=fname value="[value fname]">

What is wrong with this?

Thanks in advance,
