IE CSS position:fixed problem

I have a page divided up into divs and I have the left side of the page being used as a menu bar. I want to make it that the menu
is stationary while the rest of the page is scrollable. I tried using the
position: fixed in CSS, but it only works in Firefox. What do I need to get it to work in IE. I am using IE 6.0.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Not all browsers support fixed. You would have to add JavaScript functionality to do it.

I agree. Here's the link:
