Can't get a window past pop-up blockers

On a site I'm working on right now I have the index.htm set to open a new page on my site in a stripped window etc etc, then close itself. With pop-up blockers and especially with new AOL and windows SP2 my site won't display correctly. It just closes both windows. I reallly don't want to use an intro page to get to the site, but it has to be chromeless and 800x600.
to make it more clear..first page is index.htm, second page it brings up is axindex.htm

any way to have axindex.htm close index.htm after it is popped up? or any other suggestions?
thanks a lot for yout time! :-)

Welcome to WebmasterWorld mallad,

I believe window.opener.close() will work.
