    Hello char,
    Looks like you have a good start there but your box model is off.
    You have a 200px wide #right_menu but only 160px of right margin on #main_content.

    Try replacing your CSS with this (be sure to back your's up!)
    Code:
    @charset "UTF-8";
    /* CSS Document */
    
    body{
    	background-color:#000;
    	font:Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;
    	color:#F00;
    	background-image:url(images/background.jpg);
    /*background-repeat:repeat-y;*/
    }
    
    #main{
    	margin:auto;
    	width:1000px;
    	height:auto;
    }
    #logo_header{
    	background-image:url(images/logo.png)
    	height:auto;
    	width:auto;
    }
    #banner{
    	width:830px;
    	height:333px;
    margin-left:auto ;
     margin-right:auto;
    
    }
    
    .in_banner_links{
    	color:#F00;
    	float:right;
    	font-size:12px;
    	font-family:"TrajanPro", Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    	text-align:center;
    }
    
    
    .in_banner_links:alink{
    	font-size:16px;
    	padding:4px;
    	color:#F00
    	
    }
    #top_menu{
    	margin-right:auto;
    	margin-left:auto;
    	width:800px;
    	color:#F00;
    	font-size:10px;
    	font-family: Trebuchet, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    	text-decoration:none;
    }
    
    #top_menu ul{
     list-style:none;
     color:#F00;
     text-decoration:none;
     }
    #top_menu li {
    	text-decoration:none;
    	display:inline;
    	padding-right:20px;
    	padding-left:20px;

    	text-decoration:none;
    	margin-right:20px;
    }
    a:link{
    	color:#F00;
    	text-decoration:none;
    	
    }
    #right_menu{

     }
    #fotter li {
    	text-decoration:none;
    	display:inline;
    	padding-right:20px;
    	padding-left:20px;
    	text-align:center;
    }
    You might want to have a look at a good 3-column layout example here.

    Validate often DURING development - Use it like a splelchecker | Debug during Development |Write it for FireFox, ignore IE
    Use the right DocType | Validate your markup | Validate your CSS | Why validating is good | Why tables are bad
