This is a little fuzzy to me what you want, but let me put this out there.

Create a page (search.php) and post your left hand search to it.
Have (search.php) create the frameset pointing to the urls you want 
including the search query as part of the url.

Then when the page loads, the results from the search engine should load 
in one of the frames.
