Default Toggle active state of textbox with a radio button

I have 5 radio buttons. A B C D E
B (if selected) needs to activate a text field of 25 chars
E (if selected) needs to activate a text field of 10 chars

if user selects B, then user can type in "happy"; user then changes mind and selects D. "happy" is erased and the textfield is disabled. user then changes mind again and selects B and this time types in "not so happy"; then user changes mind selects E and types in "whatever" (B is blanked and disabled). then user selects A and hits submit. (B and E should be blanked and disabled... form returns value A as submited.

 cheap example of using one checkbox to toggle one textbox... blah!

<html><head><title>Toggle My Text Box</title>
<script language="JavaScript">

function textme () {

<form action="" method="" name="f1">
  <input type="text" disabled size="10" name="textinput">
  <input type="checkbox" onclick="textme()" name="mycheckbox" value="on" >
 <input type="submit" value="Add">
  <input type="reset" value="Clear">
