so, u want three frames--one at the top, another at the bottom left and another at the bottom right?
well, if so, here's the code:
<frameset rows="25%, *">
<frame name="top" src="top.html">
<frameset cols="25%, *">
<frame name="lower_left" src="lower_left.html">
<frame name="lower_right" src="lower_right.html">
25% is the size of the frame, * is the remainder size after the 25 %, the name attribute is use for targetting(eg. <a target="lower_right" href="yourlink.html"> )

You need to target your links.
A quick read of the frames tutorials on the left will explain what this means, but ina nutshell, each frame (in the <frame> tag) needs to have a name. Then, in your link, add target="frameName" for whatever name you gave the frame.
Alternatively, you can have <base target="frameName"> to make all the links on the left open in the middle.
Hope that helps.

Each of your frames has a name. Which is fine.
You need to amend the links in the page that is showing in the frame to get this working.
I had a look, but you have a script diabling right-click, so I cannot view your source to help you. Sorry.
The 'Download' link, add
Don't worry, you are not 'bugging' us, we like to help. I do ask, however, that you read the frames tutorial on the left. It takes frame targetting (which is exactly your problem) and explains it in great detail, with examples.

Please don't get dis-illusioned, webdesign is very rewarding after a little persistance.
I can view your source now.
Change thsi bit of code -
<a href="http://www.badger.ionichost.com/downloads.htm" target="lower_right">Downloads</a>
I recommend not using frontpage. Its fair enough using an editor, but frontpage is probably one of the worst. Code by hand, or download a trial version of DreamWeaver.
Your in the same timezone as me (I am in Bournemouth) so you know its midnight. I am off to bed! g'night.
