Ive been asked by my boss to make a website with a fixed left column containing a menu... and a thinner fixed right column which will just be an image... the center <div> must scroll, but it must use the main browser scroll bar to move up and down, so I cant just use a scrolling div... i figure the whole page must scroll, but it will give the impression of only the center <div> moving because ill have attached the outer columns...

i have no clue how to do this....?

your help would be awesome
