Flash sites present a particular problem (sites where all the content is delivered through Flash, as opposed to those with a Flash splash page and html content pages).
In general, though (for anything other that Flash sites), if you right-click within a frame or page that you want to direct people to, you can select either View Info (in Netscape) or Properties (in IE) from the context menu. This action opens a window or properties sheet (respectively) that shows the actual URL of the page you want.
You should be aware, though, that so-called deep linking may create legal liabilities. You should check the site's written policies before publishing a link that you obtain by the above method. You may need to obtain written permission to do so.
