    I like the concept, but on an 800x600 resolution, your main content cell has scroll bars on the right and bottom. Add in the scroll bar from the left hand cell, and you have scroll bars on 3 of the four sides of your main content.

    Also, the light gray link color is hard to read on the white bg. Consider adding in mouseovers for the navigation...it's almost expected nowadays.

    The box in the box that scrolls on mouseover is cool, but you have a box in a box inside a frame. Be careful not to over do it, and making too many different scrolling situations. Most ppl like to be able to scroll w/ their wheel and see the whole page move.

    I like the banner, but it looks a little lopsided...everything is on the left. Try adding more, or centering/right aligning some of it.

    Overall, I like the components in the design, but as they are they just aren't working well together. With a little work, it could be great.

    In the future to design for all resolutions, make sure you're site is about 780 pixels wide. On larger resolutions, there will be more blank space; on 800x600, it will span almost the width of the page.

    You can also use percents to determine cell widths, but I find that you have less control over the look of your site across different resolutions. Good luck w/ it though, don't forget to post your updates

    Ok well I just went and made the left navigation into hover buttons. It really looks a lot nicer now.

    I like the rollovers, but they should be preloaded.

    here is a preloader...
    Code:
    <script language="javascript">
    var myimages=new Array()
    function preloadimages(){
    for (i=0;i<preloadimages.arguments.length;i++){
    myimages[i]=new Image()
    myimages[i].src=preloadimages.arguments[i]
    }
    }
    preloadimages("whatever.gif", "whatever2.gif");
    </script>
