Through editing the tmp file and the css I got it to look the way I want.

Now, how do I force it to show the products I want it to, and/or make it not display certain products?

Courtesy of Kidd in another thread -

XfrontpagerandomField: point to extra field that you dont use on your products i.e pother2

Xfrontpagerandomvalue: set to anything you want, i.e test

on your product page set the value of pother2 to test

all products that have "test" value on pother2 will be displayed randomly
