use the:

<? header("Location:;

MAKE SURE header is used before any code that outputs anything, other wise
it won't work (as header sends additional HTTP header commands).

Alternatively the frameset could just be sent back to browser (i.e. make
your frameset dynamic (if user valid then outpust frameset etc)  - and
thereby more secure - as some can't just bypass your script to get to the
frameset directly.

Hope that helps
