I would track it through a variable. Once they click the first button, the set the flag to true. Then on selecting the second button make sure the flag is true before it does whatever it is going to do.

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
submitOK = false
function SetConfirm(){
submitOK = true;
document.temp.confirm.value = "Confirmed";
document.temp.submit1.value = "Submit";

function checkSubmit(){

<form name="temp">
<input type="button" name="confirm" value="Click To Confirm" onClick="SetConfirm()"><br>
<input type="button" name="submit1" value="Must Confirm" onClick="checkSubmit()">

In that case, there is a visual cue that they did indeed select the button, and submit will work.

Images also support onClicks... you will have to remove this bit

document.temp.confirm.value = "Confirmed";
document.temp.submit1.value = "Submit";

that changes the button values, or you will get an error.

<img border="0" src="img/bottom.gif" width="500" height="13" onClick="SetConfirm()>
<img border="0" src="img/bottom2.gif" width="500" height="13" onClick="checkSubmit()>
