MasterPage Issues

I'm a newbie at VS2005 ASP.NET development and am trying to build a website using the new MasterPage feature that will provide for three frames; header, navigation, content. In the old days I would create a FrameSet page and then maniplulate the contents of each frame in code.

Not sure how to do that in the new MasterPage feature buit I suspect that it has something to do with a ContentPlaceHolder. The problem I'm having is that I cannot arrange the ContentPlaceHolders to effect of a narrow header at the top, a narrow navigation panel to th left and a large content panel taking the rest of the page.

When I drop a ContentPlaceHolder on the MaserPage it simply shows up and I cannot move or size it at all.

Not sure what I'm doing wrong and would sure appreciate any guidance.

Thank you, stullhe104

no need of frames.. the code in the master page woild have code as you would normally write while creating tables with the similar layout as u have mentioned above .. just change the width of the cells to the widths that you would like .. the contenplaceholder will take the complete space of the cell where it is placed .. no need to resize it in the master page
