just use a variable to get the name.
in your link tag write:

... href="detail.asp?member=membername" ...

then in the detail.asp site you can use that variable to select the member from the db.

SELECT * (or whatever you need) FROM table WHERE username=membername

sorry, i dont know the asp-syntax, but i hope you can imagine what i mean.

yes. you dont need frames.

for generating the list, just use a simple for-loop.
as i already said, i dont know asp, but in php it would look like this:

$result = mysql_query("SELECT username FROM table");
while($srow = mysql_fetch_array($result)) {
echo "<a href=details.php?membername=$srow[0]>$srow[0]</a><br>
}

this is totally untested. it just came into my mind this way...

Just to cover most bases I've been working on something similar and I'm using a combination of cookies and sessions. The cookie method is easier but can be a problem for more cookie concious users.

I'd also use some sort of encryption for the Session ID variable, makes things a lot more secure. Using session ID's for sessions is actually easier without frames because you just need to make sure the ID is passed to one page. It is more work though because you need to make sure ALL links to a session protected area need to get and pass the session ID.
