Frames Question on IE with scrollbars

In my frames page I have this line of code:

frame src="leftcolumn.html" name="leftFrame" scrolling="auto" noresize

There are links in that leftcolumn.html file. Depending on a users resolution I want the page to show the scroll bar so the user can scroll down if there are more links than viewing space.

I have noticed in IE that it puts scroll bars in the horizontal and vertical position. But in FF, NS, OP, the horizontal scroll bar is not shown. Only the vertical scroll bar.

Is there a way to make IE not show the horizontal scroll bar?

I set this up:

Its the skeleton of it, but in IE at 800x600 resolution, you will see the horizontal scroll bar. I removed everything in the left column except the carriage returns so I can make it show the vertical scroll bar.

Suggestions? Thanks for the help!

Darn, that didnt work.

I added:

<body style="overflow-x:hidden;">

And it still does put the horizontal bar in the left frame.
