I assume you want the Navigation section to be top-justified, although it could also be under the logo/heading, just not as far down.

If this is the general shape you are have in mind, there is a tutorial about creating it here. You can omit its horizontal navigation section.

if you are going fixed width all the way across, this should be fairly easy to fix. you would just need to separate the main column on the left and the nav column into 2 separate divs and float them left.

I threw something together in PS to show you what i mean. It's psuedo code, so don't follow it to a T...

That is more or less what I came up with design wise.... but again my CSS coding knowlage is limited, yea I know, I just thought it was a fad so I never bothered.....much

But I cant figure out how to code it correctly

What problems are you having? Tbh, there isnt anything more to it than what was in that tutorial. Try having a look round:

CSS layout really isnt that hard if you arent doing anything advanced, most of the information (well...actually...all of it) can be gleaned from the web with a bit of googling.
