You have indeed produced a far too big a site.
I suggest you start at 800x600, which is probably the smallest these days though some may still be on 640x480, and make it look acceptable in the larger resolutions (Centering it in the browser window).

mmm ... you prolly would be okay at 800x600
some websites still code for 640X480 though to include the most ammount of users as possible, example:FoodTV (http://www.foodtv.com), notice the gap on the right

at least take out the "no scrolling" so people with smaller viewing areas can at least scroll over to see the rest.

if you want it smaller, i'd make your logo smaller and use percentages for your table size.

Change the pixel statements to percentages.
