First they both have to be on the same domain, otherwise you won't have permission to do it (security violation).

The link on frame 2:
<A HREF="JavaScript:void(0);" onClick="top.frame1.formname.submit(); return false;">

Frame1 is the name of frame 1, and formname is the name of the form.  Change these as necesary.

Oops.  needs to be:
<A HREF="JavaScript:void(0);" onClick="top.frame1.document.formname.submit(); return false;">

looks good, but what about the HREF query string I already have in there? What should I do with that?
Thanks

You have something else going on in the href, or in the form?
If it's just the link, you can leave what you have in the href, and change the onClick event to return true.  That way the href default action will still take place.
