There are two ways of doing this:  One is to use JavaScript, the other is to use HTML.  Both ways have their pros and cons.

JavaScript is the easiest to implement, but doesn't work on browsers that have JavaScript turned off, and it messes up the BACK button on the browser.  You've seen the JavaScript solution.

You can find a working example at
http://members.tripod.com/~HTML_Expert/update_two_frames/1st_frame.html

Here is the HTML solution:
1st_frame.html:
---------------------------------------------------------
<html>

<head>
<title>New Page 2</title>
</head>

<frameset rows="64,*">
  <frame name="title" scrolling="no" noresize target="contents" src="page_1_top_frame.htm">
  <frameset cols="150,*">
    <frame name="contents" target="main" src="page_1_left_frame.htm">
    <frame name="main" src="page_1_right_frame.htm">
  </frameset>
  <noframes>
  <body>
  <p>This page uses frames, but your browser doesn't support them.</p>
  </body>
  </noframes>
</frameset>
</html>
-------------------------------------------------------------

page_1_right_frame.htm
-------------------------------------------------------------
<html>

<head>
<title>Page 1 right frame</title>
</head>

<body>

<p>Page 1 right frame</p>
</body>
</html>
----------------------------------------------------------

page_1_top_frame.htm
----------------------------------------------------------
<html>

<head>
<title>Page 1 top frame</title>
<base target="contents">
</head>

<body>

<p>Page 1 top frame</p>
</body>
</html>
------------------------------------------------------------

page_1_left_frame.htm
------------------------------------------------------------
<html>

<head>
<title>Page 1 left frame</title>
</head>

<body>

<p>Page 1 left frame</p>
<a href="2nd_frame.html" target="_top">Link</A>
</body>
</html>
--------------------------------------------------------------

2nd_frame.html
--------------------------------------------------------------
<html>

<head>
<title>New Page 6</title>
</head>

<frameset rows="64,*">
  <frame name="banner" scrolling="no" noresize target="contents" src="page_2_top_frame.htm">
  <frameset cols="150,*">
    <frame name="contents" target="main" src="page_2_left_frame.htm">
    <frame name="main" src="page_2_right_frame.htm">
  </frameset>
  <noframes>
  <body>
  <p>This page uses frames, but your browser doesn't support them.</p>
  </body>
  </noframes>
</frameset>
</html>
-----------------------------------------------------------

page_2_top_frame.htm
-----------------------------------------------------------
<html>

<head>
<title>Page 2 top frame</title>
<base target="contents">
</head>

<p>Page 2 top frame</p>

</html>
-----------------------------------------------------------

<base target="main">

<body>

<p>Page 2 left frame</p>
<a href="1st_frame.html" target="_top">Link</A>
</body>
</html>
-----------------------------------------------------------

page_2_right_frame.htm
-----------------------------------------------------------
