Hi,
To get a basic layout of header and below that is 3 columns for left nav, content and right col and footer  I would use a grid like this.

To get the heights of the columns (left,content,right) to line up do I
add another div in  each grid as a wrapper and style that with css code ?


<link href="css/reset.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<link href="css/text.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<link href="css/960.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<link href="css/demo.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
</head>

<body>
<div class="container_12" id="container">
<div class="grid_12 " id="header" >
Content for  header</div>
<div class="clear"></div>

<div class="grid_4">
add another div here 
left nav
</div>


<div class="grid_4">Content</div>
<div class="grid_4">right </div>

<div class="clear"></div>

<div class="grid_12">footer</div>
<div class="clear"></div>
</div>

You shouldn't need to worry about the heights based on your sample

the sample for just that a sample.
if I add some cod then to make the left/right col finish at same level eg say I have a background color for each col

The content could be
<div class="grid_4">
add another div here 
left nav
</div>


<div class="grid_4">Content

Essence

The 960 Grid System is an effort to streamline web development workflow by providing commonly used dimensions, based on a width of 960 pixels. There are two variants: 12 and 16 columns, which can be used separately or in tandem. Read more.
Dimensions

The 12-column grid is divided into portions that are 60 pixels wide. The 16-column grid consists of 40 pixel increments. Each column has 10 pixels of margin on the left and right, which create 20 pixel wide gutters between columns. View demo.



</div>
<div class="grid_4">right </div>

<div class="clear"></div>

<div class="grid_12">footer</div>
<div class="clear"></div>
</div>

we are getting confused a bit here.

I am talking about the situation when using a 960 grid as I know what you do without a grid. for a 960 grid , do I do the same to adjust cols as without a grid or does 960 grid have a different way to do this?

Sorry about the bad art work, but this is what your code does.  The footer will be pushed down by the longest column.  If col 1 and col 3 are 300px high and col 2 is 800px high, then the footer will be 800px below the header.

|---------------------------------------|
|                  header                    |
|---------------------------------------|
|               |                 |             |
|   col1     |    col 2      |     col 3|
|------------|--------------|----------|
|                 footer                      |
|---------------------------------------|

yes  I know but I want all columns to finish on highest col as the example above with a grid.
I ant to push all columns to the height of eg 800px and I am using a grid
.
The question is what difference does using a grid make to this problem as I will to wrap up grid containers in another div using the way you mentioned.

The grid is about width not height.
