My host : 1and1.com
My setup : I've my primary domain along with a sub domain located around the Linux host.
Things I need : Sub domain (presently on Linux host) ought to be pointed to what .Internet site located on MS Business hosting on 1and1. What's the easiest way of achieving it?
Things I did to date : Used Frame redirect (from Sub domain to .Internet site) and my client is pissed that Search engine optimization will require popular. And that he is calling us a lousy programmer!
Suggestions, comments, solutions greatly appreciated.

I switched to their Vps because I'm able to host multiple domain names, full ASP.internet control (ports, etc, no trust issues), and since I physically edit my SQL database instead of use their junk SQL web interface.
