Disable back button of browser in Web application

I have a Web application in which I want to disable the back button of browser, but I am unable to find solution for it. Is there any JavaScript for disabling the back button of the browser (IE and Netscape mainly)?
There is no way disable only the back button that I know of... You can disable the entire "toolbar" can contains the Back button as well as the other browser control buttons, by using the toolbar property of the window object in JavaScript, but I have found no way to disable individual objects within the toolbar. Sorry...
