Okay, so I have never done any JS before, but I have a project where I need to use it for the first time.

Currently, I have a fly out menu div using negative margins, but the project manager would rather have me use JavaScript. I need it to be able to fly out without affecting any other content on the page (at 1024 X 768 the other div's move).

Here is the current example. http://cghearn.com/cbredesign/index.html

Also, my deadline is the 1st of January, so help is VERY MUCH appreciated.
