I'm just starting out with the whole Macromedia suite and i've done my first simple web page with bits of flash and fireworks images in it

My web page looks ok on my laptop but when i view it on my home pc or anyone elses pc then the web page has altered slightly.

The most annoying thing is the height of my web page.

On my laptop the width is perfect (i've set it to 100%) and it is on the pc but on the pc i've got vertical scroll bars on my pc but not on my laptop (height is set to 575) and if you scroll down there's about 1cm of overflow in my table.

How do i get my web page to always fit nicely vertically on any computer.

my page site is www.supershaft.co.uk (http://www.supershaft.co.uk)

Forget the fact that its a web site about cats. i have a daughter who loves cats.

The website displays inside what we call the 'viewport'. The height of this area cannot be controlled by you and it's nothing you should worry about. Most sites have vertical scrollbars and webmasters are usually quite happy they are there :)
