Need form submission help

My host is on and I'm using their pre-installed cgi form.  Here
is my code:

<form action="cgi/gdform.cgi" method="post">

<input type="hidden" name="subject" value="Form Submission">
<input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="thanks.htm">

<INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="FirstName" SIZE=40>
<INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="email" SIZE=40>
<INPUT TYPE="submit" NAME="Submit" VALUE="Submit"></P>

It's actually within a table but I deleted those tags for clarity.  Now my
concern is, the emails I'm getting look like this:

FirstName: Steve
Submit: Submit
comments: This is a test message


This e-mail was generated from a form submission on your website:

Can anyone tell me how to get rid of that "Submit:Submit" line?  It doesn't
seem to serve any purpose other than to clutter up the email.  I'm assuming
it's something within my <INPUT TYPE="submit"> tag but I'm not sure what I
can delete and still have the form work.

Thanks for any help!

Forms send name/value pairs.  If something is not named, it will not be
sent as a name/value pair, and therefore, should not show up in the email
you are receiving.  
So, change:
<INPUT TYPE="submit" NAME="Submit" VALUE="Submit">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Submit">

It looks to me like a standard email you would get from a standard (free)
form submission!
If it didn't give the description of the line the client was inputting it
would be very confusing and there were a lot of input lines, say 20 or more,
then without the relative line descriptions it would be almost impossible to
work out the correct input information, especially if the client had entered
stuff in an incorrect line - hope this helps. - Phil x x
