>>i tried that i get a syntax error when i place the code into the template.
can you post the code and the error

you need to make the call just before the loop

<?php
// retrieve one post with an ID of 5
query_posts('p=5');      
?>
<!-- the loop -->
<?php if (have_posts()) : ?>
      <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
      <?php require('post.php'); ?>
<?php endwhile; ?>

            <div class="navigation">
                  <div class="alignleft"><?php posts_nav_link('','','&laquo; Previous Entries') ?></div>
                  <div class="alignright"><?php posts_nav_link('','Next Entries &raquo;','') ?></div>
            </div>
            
      <?php else : ?>

      <?php endif; ?>

The URL is opinionscouts.com/reviews.  HERE IS THE CODE I HAVE IN THERE, I CAN GET IT TO GET A RANDOM POST BUT NOT THE EXACT POST I WANT.

BELOW IS THE CODE I USE TO GET THE EXACT POST I WANT IN THE FEATURED SECTION ON HOME PAGE LEFT, BUT IT WILL NOT WORK IN FEATURED CATEGORY FOR SOME REASON.

<div id="homepageleft">
            
                  <div class="featured">
                        <?php query_posts('p=6'); while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
                        <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
                        <?php global $more; $more = 0; the_content(__('Find out more &raquo;'));?><div style="clear:both;"></div>
                        <?php endwhile; ?>
                  </div>
<div id="homepageright">
		
			<div class="thumb">
			<h2>Featured Category #1</h2>
 
				<?php $rand_posts = get_posts('numberposts=&orderby=RAND()'); foreach( $rand_posts as $post )?>
 
				<div class="thumbleft">
					<a href="http://healthy13.surveysc.hop.clickbank.net">
<img src="http://opinionscouts.com/reviews/wp-content/themes/revolution_magazine-21/images/girls.jpg"></a>
				</div>
				
				<div class="thumbright">
					<b><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a></b>
					
					<?php global $more; $more = 0; the_content(__('Find out more &raquo;'));?>
				</div>
				
				<div style="clear:both;"></div>
				
				
				
			</div>
		
			<div class="thumb">
			<h2>Featured Category #2</h2>
 
				<?php $rand_posts = get_posts('numberposts=&orderby=RAND()'); foreach( $rand_posts as $post )?>
 
				<div class="thumbleft">
					<a href="http://healthy13.surveysc.hop.clickbank.net">
<img src="http://opinionscouts.com/reviews/wp-content/themes/revolution_magazine-21/images/compsm.jpg"></a>
				</div>
				
				<div class="thumbright">
					<b><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a></b>
					
					<?php global $more; $more = 0; the_content(__('Find out more &raquo;'));?>
				</div>
				
				<div style="clear:both;"></div>
				
				
				
			</div>
