SharePoint 2010 Branding Issues

Hello, I have added the following code to the v4.master file right under the body tag.

Question 1 (Almost no priority, but while your at it) - I want to remove the left navigation section, what is the right way to do it?

Question 2 (When i use the code supplied with this post, the whole SP page shifts down allowing for the two new regions.  The scroll bar for the body of the SP content is either too big or too small, its not equal to ((100% heightof screen)-(REGION1+REGION2))

How can i adjust for that?  I am looking for direction in where the tags should go.
<div scroll="no" id="s4-workspace" class="s4-nosetwidth" style="overflow:visible; width:1024px; margin-right:auto; margin-left:auto; background:white;"> 
			<td style="width:75%;"><a href="/">
			<img src="http://csspbeta1/SiteAssets/YESPrep-NavigationLogo.png" alt="Navigation Logo" class="style1" /></a></td>
				<p style="width: 310px;margin-bottom:5px;">		
						Search:&nbsp;<input id="txtSearchField" type="text" style="width: 259px"
				            onkeyup="if (event.ctrlKey && event.keyCode == 83) { event.keyCode = 0;  window.navigate('' + txtSearchField.value); }"
							onkeydown="		if ((event.which && event.which == 13) ||  (event.keyCode && event.keyCode == 13))
												window.navigate('http://csspbeta1/SearchCenter/Pages/Results.aspx?k=' + txtSearchField.value);
												return false;
												return true;
							" /><br />
				<p style="width: 310px;margin-top:0px;">		
						<span lang="en-us">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span>
				        <a href="#" onclick="window.navigate('http://csspbeta1/SearchCenter/Pages/Results.aspx?k=' + txtSearchField.value);">
						Search Intranet</a>&nbsp;|&nbsp;
				        <a href="#" onclick="window.navigate('http://student/search/Pages/StudentSearch.aspx?q=' + txtSearchField.value);">
						Student Profile</a>&nbsp;|&nbsp;
				        <a href="#" onclick="window.navigate('' + txtSearchField.value);">
								<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
			<td><img src="http://csspbeta1/SiteAssets/YLogoSlanted.png" alt="Navigation Logo" /></td>
<div style="margin-bottom:5px" id="SPBackgroundImage">
