The best way to do this is really to just include the menu on every page.  Using a server-side scripting language like PHP or ASP, or even using Apache's "Server-Side Includes" (SSI) makes it really easy to do so.  In fact, it won't even require any Javascript.

Votey has a correct answer.  It is easier on you the developer to just have 3 seperate pages, each page with the same code for that menu.  That can be done, like Votey said, with server-side scripting languages.

There is however another, more advanced alternative.  AJAX, much more difficult to code for a beginner, combines javascript and server-side scripting to actually change that "target" section without reloading the page.  I doubt that this concept is really applicable for your situation but it is an alternative that is growing in popularity.

You asked for some links to help you get start.  If you are unfamiler with PHP or ASP then you should start with the basics:
http://www.w3schools.com/ <-- This site teachs the basics in almost any web development field, HTML, PHP, ASP, AJAX

I suggest that you follow Votey's advice though and stick with the simple approach.  No need complicating something this simple.  But if you continue in web development you will see that this is a situation where AJAX could be applied.  Personally I think it is overrated =)

Another alternative is to have all 3 pages worth of data on the same page in <div> tags, and have the links on the top run a javascript function to only display the contents of the relevant <div> tag.  This might be applicable for static content pages.

Another alternative is to use frames, have your menu on one frame and have a frame underneath it for your content which is loaded based on the link they chose.
