Lightbulb Bookmark Issue

Using

window.external.AddFavorite(bookmarkurl,bookmarkti tle);

we can add our site in visitors favorite list (In I.E. Only). It's polite enough to ask the user, wether to bookmark my site or not. Forum is full of ethical issues on this topic, which makes sense.
Here is my scenario... I have a link on my Links Frame.. "BookMark" .. when a visitor clicks on this link, they are taken to my bookmark.htm page, where I have a little tutorial on how to Bookmark a site in I.E and how to in Netscape and stuff.

What I do (for I.E.users) is, since they have already CLICKED on the link to bookmark my site, I use

window.external.AddFavorite(bookmarkurl,bookmarkti tle);

in Body onLoad of bookmark.htm to trigger the bookmark function automatically. Isn't that great?

Now.. what I want to do next is ... I want to send them back to my home page if they DID bookmarked my page, otherwise leave them on the bookmark.htm page if they choose not to bookmark my site. I thought, like prompt(), the AddFavorite() returns a value that I can check. But I coudn't find it. Is there a way or trick to know wether the visitor bookmarked my site or not?

I apologize for taking up so much space and your time, but I just like to talk in details

Thanks
