Default define location for file input tag

I asked this question in the other forum but didn't get any replies so I figured I'll try here. What I'm trying to do:

I have a form with a input element, type file. What I want to happen when a user clicks the Browse button to go get a file is for the "Choose File" dialog to open to a specified location defined by the script. For instance:

<form...>
<input name="Pic" type="file" onClick="getPic()">
</form>

in head...
function getPic() {
  myElement = document.form.Pic;
  path = "ftp://ftpsite/pictures/";
  myElement.value = path;
}

Is it possible to do this? If so, does anyone know how to achieve it?

thanx,
Bob
