If you want the links to always be there and the links to show up on the right side, you want frames.

Make one page called navigation.htm  In that page just do all your links.  Use the following code:
<a href="page.htm" target="main">my link</a>  
Target="main" will have the link open up on the right.

Then make a page called main.htm  That will be your home page.  Then make a page called index.htm and place the following code:


<title>my home page</title>


<frameset cols="150,*">
  <frame name="contents" target="main" src="navigation.htm">
  <frame name="main" src="main.htm">
  <p>This page uses frames, but your browser doesn't support them.</p>

If you just want one page with no frames, then you want a table.  In front page, just select table-->insert table.  One row and two columns.  This will gice you two "cells" side by side.
You can use this as reference, but you'll have to play with the numbers to more match your specifics.:

<table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" height="251">
    <td width="16%" height="251">place your links in this table</td>
    <td width="84%" height="251">Place anything else here</td>

Index is a default home page name.  This will be your actual home page, calling the two other pages that make it, (i.e. navigation.htm and main.htm)

This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.
