ok i fixed it after like an hour .

here is what i did, it may not be the best, but it did fix it for ie6.

i floated the content div left, then i positioned it and added it to my iefixes file. now the content div works for both ie6 and ff. does anyone have a better way? any help greatly appreciated. thanks .derek;)

If it works and doesn't mess the other browsers your good to go.
