Will this work?

at teh very start of the left hand menu bar put this:

<DIV ID="toHide">

and at the end of what you dotn want put
</DIV>
<INPUT TYPE="button" value="hide/Show MenuBar" onClick="( ((document.getElementById('toHide').style.display == 'none') ? document.getElementById('toHide').style.display='block' : document.getElementById('toHide').style.display='none'));">

is whats inside the <SCRIPT> and </SCRIPT> a function or is it simply a bunch of code that gets executed as soon as it is parsed by the browser?  (i.e.: Not inside a function blah(){  } ? )

if your code is NOT inside a function and simply by itself and gets called as soon as it is parsed... then yes I do believe that wrapping the DIV tag around the Script tags will do the trick for you (however im not 100% sure but I do believe so.
