Using an iFrame for Adverts

I'm running a blog that gets approx 30k visitors/month. I've been approached by some folks who'd like to place their adverts site-wide, but I'm concerned about Google impact.

Some adverts I've been approached with are the size of a 125x125 or 160x160 banner, but contain text with links. Others are .gif or .jpeg images that link off to a site.

I'm curious if placing these adverts on an HMTL page within my domain, then disallowing search engines in the robots.txt for that page & using Meta Robots "noindex,nofollow" would suffice?

Do using iFrames in this manner keep me from endorsing ("link juice") these sites?

Thanks for your thoughts.
