[thelist] JS window opening; IE size problem

ok, it's an intranet, so no whining...

i have JS (see below) that tells the browser to open a new window 
to a particular size, however, IE opens it so that the inner size 
(inside the chrome) is that size, making the entire browser window 
larger than i want... i need a fix, and my JS (especially with IE-
specific crap) is not so sharp... targetting IE4+...

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE = "JavaScript">

// open new window
function openWin(file, name) {
        popupWin = window.open(file, name, 

        // focus window (only for > Navigator 3.0)

        if ( (navigator.appName != "Microsoft Internet Explorer") && 
(navigator.appVersion.substring(0,1) == "3") )

// done hiding -->



<a href="javascript:openWin('index.html', 'AdminWin');">New 
Window, baby.</a>
