<FORM NAME="myForm">
<SELECT NAME="mySelect" onChange="parent.FRAMENAME.location.href=document.myForm.mySelect.options[document.myForm.mySelect.selectedIndex].value">
<OPTION VALUE="http://www.yahoo.com">Yahoo

In older browsers it requires that the user chooses a selection and then click elsewhere to trigger the onChange event handler.
