How to display the select result at the same page ?

Hi,

I'm now doing a searching program, and I wish to display the search result at the same page where the searching keyword is on top and the result result is at the bottom of the page. What is the best way of doing it ?? Please provide me some sample code. Thanks..
p/s : Is it possible to do it without using frame ??
