To slightly extend upon what panagiotiss said:

You need to edit your template(s). To do this go to Template Manager -> select template -> select "edit html" (joomla 1.5 - 1.6).

Within here you need to look for the line which specifies where the main content area is:
<jdoc:include type="component" />

And then add your new module position below this, i.e.:

<jdoc:include type="component" />
<jdoc:include type="modules" name="your_position" />

Once you have done this, you also need to edit the templateDetails.xml file. You need to add the line:

Hope this helps.

Simple Way will be use a plugin to embed module in content

After installing using following syntax in editor

{module [65]}
where 65 is the modules id.

Second method will be adding custom position to the template,

Add following code in index.php

<div id="custompos">            
                  <jdoc:include type="modules" name="custompos"/>

Add css to template.css

Css goes here


Add <position>custompos</position> to templateDetails.xml
