One other idea occurred to me, but I don't know how feasible it is. If you do the iframe this way:

<iframe id="theIF" src="" style="height:1px;width:100%"></iframe>

Then you could set the height dynamically by doing the links this way:

<a href="somesite.com" target="theIF"
onClick="document.getElementById('theIF').style.height='700px'">
click for somesite</a>

You could set the height to the maximum for pages on that site.  Like I said I'm not sure of feasibility.  If there are a lot of sites, or there is a big rnage of page lengths on some of them it would probably be worse than scrolling, but if there is some consistency, it might be an option.  Of course they might change the page layouts and you would have to make changes when they did but it is a possibility.

Hmmm, that will be the same as setting the hight directly in the iframe.
I have another idea but i am not good in javascript. what is i opened a new browser window, and opened the url i want into it. In that case i think i can get the hight of the page within that browser. Fine if that is correct then we can pass the hight to the original browser and resize the iframe to it.
Is that possible?????

I think that still gets a security violation.  The height is in the DOM for the opened page, but the scripting to reference it would still have to come from a page on your site, so it would still be cross-domain scripting.  :^(
