More than one check boxes and selecting all the check boxes

Just started to learn Ruby on Rails
I have a list of users displayed as rows and towards each row there is a
check box. There is a "Select All" , and "Approve" buttons. On clicking
the Select All button I want to check all the check boxes or can check
the boxes separtely if don't want to check all the boxes and then after
submitting the Approve button wish to change the status of the
users(which users whose check box is checked) to approved. Pls give me
suggestions in doing this.

<table width="100%" border="1">
<tr><td colspan="6" align="center"><h3>User list</h3></td>
    <th>User Name</th>
    <th> Country</th>

    <th> <%= submit_tag "Select All", :onclick=>"return check_all()" %>

  <% count = 0 %>
<%= form_tag :controller=>"user",:action=>"list_users"%>
<% for user in @users %>
<% count = count + 1%>
    <td align="center"><%=link_to,:controller=>"User",:action=>"edit", :id=> %></td>
    <td align="center"><%= user.username %></td>
    <td align="center"><%= user.address %></td>
    <td align="center"><%= %></td>
    <td align="center"><%= user.language.language %>
    <td> <%= check_box_tag "user_status"+count.to_s,>
<% end %>
<%= hidden_field_tag "h_id" ,count %>
<tr><td colspan="6" align="center">
<%= will_paginate @users %><br>
<%= submit_tag "Approve", :controller=>"user"

and in my controller I tried this one

def list_users

  if !(params[:search].blank? and params[:country_id].blank?)
      if and params[:commit] == "Search"
      @users =[:search],params[:country_id],params[:page])

    @users = User.paginate :page=>params[:page],:per_page => 2
     @users = User.paginate :page=>params[:page],:per_page => 2
  if @users.blank?
    flash[:notice] = 'No Records Found.'

    if and params[:commit] == "Approve"
         params[:user_status].each do |ln|
             @user = User.find(ln)

  Now if selected users separately(not by using the "Select All"
button) the status of the selected users are changing. But the "Select
All" button is not working. ie when clicking on the "Select All" button
only the first one in the list is selecting

and in my javascript i wrote
function check_all() {
var count = document.getElementById('h_id').value;
  document.getElementById('user_status'+i).checked = true
return false;
Pleas help in solving this problem
Thanks in advance
