[thelist] How to post form results into a specific frame page?

I've been banging my head against a wall for over a week now, and I'm hoping
someone can help me.

I've got a website I'm working on here:

On the left is a search block that searches our library's catalog. The
catalog is on a completely different server. So, what I'd like to do is,
when someone searches for something, rather than replace the current page
with the search results, I'd like it to open a new page which would use
frames. Basically, one small frame on top with a button to return to the
home page and have the results show below.

So my question is, how do I get a form to pass the results to a frame on a
completely different page?

I'm guessing I'll have to use javascript or php, but I haven't had any luck
finding what to do. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!
