jQuery Disable and Enable Form Elements Using a Checkbox

Here is a simple little snippet that uses jQuery to enable or disable text input boxes in forms using a checkbox.

When I tried to install iPlayer with Google Chrome 6.0.472.53 I received an error message and was unable to install despite several attempts. I then tried my trusty old Firefox 3.6.9 and the same happened again. I tried also to find an offline version and could not find one.
