In the code snippet, how do I get the footer on the bottom of the page and centered?

Also, how do I get everything to stay in the middle of the page, except the footer, which will expand all the way across?
<html>
<head></head>
<body>
<div>top div here</div>

<div style="float:left;text-align:center;width:200;height:200px;border:1px solid black;padding:10px;margin:10px;">box 1</div>
<div style="float:left;text-align:center;width:200;height:200px;border:1px solid black;padding:10px;margin:10px;">box 2</div>
<div style="float:left;text-align:center;width:200;height:200px;border:1px solid black;padding:10px;margin:10px;">box 3</div>



	<div id="footer" style="position:relative;">
		a footer here
	</div>
</body>
</html>

I think the code below might be all I need for the footer part at least.
<div id="footer" style="clear:both;">
