<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
<!--
function openFrames(a, b);
parent.FIRSTFRAME.location.href = a;
parent.SECONDFRAME.location.href = b;
// -->
</SCRIPT>
<A HREF="openFrames('page1.htm', 'page2.htm')">Link</A>

I guess you have named your frames:
<FRAME NAME="whatever" SRC="something.htm">

This brings up an error cannot find "openFrames('chsr2.html','main.html')"
The documents exist in that directory.
I tryed adding "javascript:" to the front (ie "javascript:openFrames(....") and then it just told me that the document was done without doing anything.
The frames I am trying to change are named "stuff" and "main"

If you could elobrate a little it would help me out. I am a novice when it comkes to javascript.

Ok, here it is. I forgot the {}'s. I've also changed your frame names.

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
<!--
function openFrames(a, b) {
  parent.stuffs.location.href = a;
  parent.main.location.href = b;
}
// -->
</SCRIPT>

And you're right about the "javascript:" I forgot that. The clock is running towards midnight at my side of the globe and I better go sleep.
