jquery change input value with click handler

  1. I am trying to change the text in the submit button on click. Trying to stop multiple submitters.
    I have this in header.php:

    <script type="text/javascript">
    $("form.buttontext")
    .submit(function() {
    var $form = $(this);
    $.post($form.attr('action'), function(){
    var $submit = $form.find("input:submit").val('Processing');
    window.setTimeout(function() {
    $submit.val('Register Now');
    }, 5000);
    });
    return false; //
    });‚Äč
    </script>

    also tried disabling submit on click:

    $('input:submit').click(function(){
    	$('input:submit').attr("disabled", true);
    });

    Also tried this:

    $(document).ready(function(){
                    $('#gform_submit_button_6').click(function(){
                    $('input:submit').attr("disabled", true);
                    });
            });

    Can someone please shed some light on where I am going wrong? I cannot get a click handler to work. I tried the submit handler too. No luck. I am obviously new to this and trying to learn!
