Pmob's 3 column equalizing layout is pretty much what I need (http://www.pmob.co.uk/temp/3colfixedtest_4.htm) - however, I need to set the width of the center column, and have the left and right adjust themselves (instead of setting the left and right and the center filling the rest).

I've spent untold hours trying to do it and I can't handle anymore, if I ever meet the guy who wrote IE I will punch him in the face

If anyone can modify this layout like that, I'd be so appreciative!
