Solution without using scripts:
Since the submit button specified first is considered default by most browsers, specify the submit button you want to be the default one first. Then use stylesheets and absolute positioning to put the buttons where you want them. It's not an ideal solution, but using scripts is even worse imho.
  I really think that how the user interacts with your form should be up to the browser to decide. However, since browsers of today lack basic usability that might not be an option just yet...
