    You might have a bigger dilemma than you think ;-)
    Get out of the frames before it's too late:

    AFAIK a workaround is to link to one page in one of the frames as usual
    and also add "go to URL" behavior to the same button/link to open next
    page in next frame.

    Take this quiz first:
    [url]http://www.MadCoWWWebDesign.com/go/quizz.htm[/url]

    If you pass with, let's say..70% accuracy, then go ahead and use frames, but
    read this before you do:
    [url]http://www.MadCoWWWebDesign.com/go/?2[/url]

    If you DON"T pass w/ 70% or more accuracy, RUN. Frames are not for newbies. I'd
    venture to say they're not for intermediates, either. They're a big pain in the
    rump and you are, as Murray said, opening Pandora's box. There are MAYBE one or
    two reasons to ever use frames, and I doubt you have one of those reasons.

    P.S. Don't take our comments as criticisms...take them as sound advice from 3
    people that have a lot of experience in this area and are trying to save you a
    lot of wasted time, energy and headaches! :)

    use javascript.

    Have the frameset file open.
    select the link, and apply a "go to url" behavior from the behaviors window.
    Pick the frame you want it to open in, and the file to open.
    repeat for any other frame's contents you want to change with the same
    click.
