This is just a start, but it should help you get going.  Take this code and put it in a file called stylesheet.css  (keep it in the same folder as indexs.html)

/* CSS Document */
body{
      margin:0;
      padding:0;
}

div#one {
      position:absolute;
      top:186px;
      left:445px;
}
div#two {
      position:absolute;
      top:206px;
      left:343px;
}

______________________________________________
Now take this code and use it for indexs.html:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<link href="stylesheet.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">

</head>

<body>
<form name="uno">
<table border="0" width="642" height="480" cellspacing="0">
<tr height="121">
      <td colspan="2" width="642" height="121" background="top.gif"></td>
</tr>
<tr height="336">
      <td width="266" background="left.gif"></td>
      <td width="376" background="right.gif">
 <p>&nbsp;</p>
      </td>
</tr>
<tr height="24" width="642"><td colspan="2" width="642" background="bottom.gif"></td></tr>

</table>
</form>
<div id="one"><input type="text" size="21"></div>
<div id="two"><input type="text" size="38"></div>

</body>
</html>

This is all done with div's.  The stylesheet tells the div where to place itself on the page.  This should get you going, feel free to respond with any other questions about this/divs/how i did it...

oh..i just noticed a small problem..the closing form tag,  </form> , should be placed after the last <div> tag.

You could(and probably should) essentially have
<table>
.....
</table>

<form>
<div id="one"></div>
<div id="two"></div>
etc...
</form>
