To Modal, or not to Modal.....

I have a main screen with the flight info, when you click on 'book seat' a modal dialog pops up. On it I have a 'help' button but when the help window opens it can not be used because the booking dialog is modal.
Has anyone else (other than Shakespere) had this problem? Is there a way of saying to a frame, ignore modal???
