You can either nest them:

<div id="container1">
   <div id="container2">

or stack them:

<div id="container1">

<div id="container2">

That's what I thought.  I've attach a snapshot of the page.  My container1 is broken up as you see the blue squares.  The menu that is circled should be in the block the arrow is pointing to but I can't seem to get it there.   There alignment for that block is set for float: left so that might be the problem.

Without code and CSS, impossible to help.  At a guess, your menu probably has the clear CSS property set so it breaks out.

Overall comment..."containers" in CSS are any block element.  You can have as many as you wish so long as you know how to move them around and position them with CSS.
