Multiple onclick in a Button

I am using IE6 and defined this function as the onclick handler of a button:

The problem is, if I comment out the .disabled= lines, and if I click multiple times quickly, there will be some clicks missed and not invoking my handler. Is disabling the button a proper solution to this problem? Is there a better way to avoid missed clicks if the user clicks a button several times rapidly?

Some of the rapid clicks may be being interpreted as double-clicks. If the user is going to do stupid things, sometimes there's not much you casn do for them.
