If there's always going to be a whole lot of content, you don't need to agonize over the footer.
I guess I'm agonizing over the footer because on my test page I have plenty of content and the footer still appears about 20px below the header.
This may be irrelevant, but it's a two-column layout. On the left is a block for the nav menu. On the right is a block for an image (a photo) and below that is a separate block with text. All three blocks have sample text in them as content.
