It sounds like you need to read basic documentation on combining SQL queries.
Basically, you need to have a column that is common across both tables.
Eg., in TABLE1 have a column named TABLE1ID. Have the same ID cross referenced in TABLE2. The ID would be sequenced in some way (auto_increment if MySQL).
So it would look like this:
create table1 ( table1id number, data varchar);
create table2 ( table2id number, table1id number, data varchar);
select * from table1, table2, where table1.table1id = X and table1.table1id = table2.table1id;
If that's still confusing, I suggest you take a look at the massive amount of documentation available on this subject on the web.
http://www.mysql.com/doc/en is a good place to start. It's not necessary to use the complicated LEFT JOIN, INNER JOIN, etc, at first (until you have some pretty complicated queries).
I hope this helps!
