If I understand your question correctly, what you want to do would
require frames. However, there are a lot of good reasons not to use
them, and a well-designed page will not cause you problems--i.e.,
linking to a new page will not seem like "opening a whole new page."
Run through a couple of tutorials at www.projectseven.com (for "pure"
css positioning, the Quickdraw McFly tute, for css-styled tables there
is also a tutorial), and you'll see how it works.

Alright so I added some frames and then I added a link in the frame and when I click on it in the browser it opens up in the frame not in the space below?
Using DW without a basic knowledge of HTML is going to be a very tough road
for you. Your incremental steps along the learning curve will be
infnitesimal and the frustration load will be high. If you are serious
about creating web pages, you cannot move forward at any appreciable pace
without an understanding of what is going on under the hood. Please
consider taking a break to acquire some of this knowledge.

Each frame has a unique name (Window>Frames will show you this). You need to target the link to the name of the frame you want the content to appear in. Do this using the target attribute - on the Property Inspector just below the Link box. However, I do agree with what Bonnie says in her post (just did'nt give your post as much thought as she did - sorry bout that). The majority of web sites have a consistant layout without using frames. If you're learning web design understanding Frames comes way, way, behind the ability to design layouts that are consistant throughout the site.
