As Alex said above no one uses frames these days
If my memory serves me right you need to give the frames a name and then target the link to that frame.
e.g.Your index page code should look something like this (with a frameset doctype of course.)
Then to link form the sideframe into the main big frame you would have links like this:
<frameset rows="*" cols="21%,79%">
<frame src="frame2.html" name="frame2">
<frame src="frame1.html" name="frame1">
Think hard before you go with Frame pages as they are generally accepted as bad practice these days.
