The same way you create any frameset. With the frameset open, when you
specify your links in the drop-down, you would use the Property inspector to
target the desired frame by name.
But frames are good to avoid. The reason for using or not using frames
should be based on a) your site's needs, and b) your willingness to accept
the potential problems that frames can create for you as developer and
maintainer of the site and for your visitors as casual users of the site.
I am down on frames because I believe that they create many more problems
than they solve.
Judging from the posts here, and the kinds of problems that are described,
the kind of person most likely to elect to use frames is also the kind of
person most likely ill-prepared fo solve the ensuing problems when they
arise. If you feel a) that you understand the problems and b) that you are
prepared to handle them when they occur, and c) that you have a need to use
frames, then by all means use them.
As far as I know, the most comprehensive discussions of frames and their
potential problems can be found on these two links -
