Always vAlign Bottom

162 100+
Basically, I'm trying to get a div *bottom* to stick to the bottom of the page always, regardless if div *content* has enough data to push it down. Simple right? But it also needs to be able to align below the page just below *content* if the page needs to scroll, so it can't be aligned "absolutely". So how's it done?

This isn't exactly what you want but I don't have time to do more (from memory of what I've done before) so I slapped this together and hopefully you can play with it. Of course, IE6 screws it up.

#bottom {
