As neksus said - don't use iframes. There are plenty of reasons why you want to avoid them, but to sum it all up: Iframes suck. First of all they represent a security threat. Secondly search engines don't mix well with them. Finally iframes aren't really user friendly (also, many people use filters to remove all iframes as their main purpose on the internet is displaying ads anyway). The main alternative to iframes is applying the overflow:auto attribute to i.e. a <div> element (combined with some sort of include-script), but my opinion is that all inline scrollbars should be avoided if possible.

ya, i used to use them all the time (because the sites i was making SEO didnt matter), i thought it was neat how you could load content with the rest of the page remaining static. but in the long run, its not really worth it.

If you really need a box with a scrollbar then I would still recommend using the overflow:auto attribute. It's widely supported by browsers by now, it's part of the w3c specification, and if an old version of Netscape can't handle that I wouldn't lose too much sleep over it.
But in general I would advice you to avoid the scrollbars altogether and do a fluid design. It's far more user friendly.
