You are doing several things wrong:

1. This is off topic for this list.

2. Your <form> has no action attributed defined. This is invalid HTML.
Most browsers will submit the form to the same URL as where the form is.
(If this is what you want, which is perfectly legitimate, 
write the URL properly: <form action="URL goes here">)

3. Both frames and drop down menus of links 
reduce usability. Use a normal site with 
normal links.

Nir.
