Looks like you need to structure the columns a little different. The general rule is in your wrapper, put any floated elements first, then your non-floated main content.

So, in your case. You would have a wrapper like this:

<div id="wrapper">
<div id="left"></div>
<div id="right"></div>
<div id="main"></div>

Then your css would like something like this:

#wrapper {

#left {
width: 100px;
float: left;
#right {
width: 100px;
float: right;
#main {
width: 800px;
margin: 0 auto;

Basically, float your columns, but don't float the main content. The auto left/right margins won't work on a floated element.
