Table Row Height as remainder of page in IE6

Hi,

I have been trying to get the following appearence:
have a table with 3 rows that occupies 100% both widht and height. first row is set to 100px, second to 100px and the last row should take the rest of the height of the page.
I have tried many proposed solutions but have not been successful.
How can this be done for IE6 browser?

the solution does not need to be with tables. can be script or anything that does the correct job.

these a few things i have tried:

try:

body{
overflow-y:scroll;
width:100%;
height:100%;

all that does is activate the scroll bar for the whole page.
my intention is a layout for a web application.
if there is overflow actually the middle row should use scroll bar but NOT a scrollbar for the whole page.

overflow:hidden;

The thing here is: 'overflow' and 'height:100%;' have to be combined othewise the height:100%; would not work in IE6.

Hope this helps
