[Tutor] looking for some advice

Here is what I am trying to do:
I have a window which has a row of buttons on it. Below the buttons is a label frame. Depending upon which button they push, I want to change the widgets in the label frame. I can add widgets now with no problem.
Basically, I am trying to imitate a notebook like in Tkinter.ttk, without having to re-write a major chunk of the app to add such a widget. I know Tix has a notebook widget, but that would require people (read end users) to download and compile the Tix components.
My questions are:
1. how do I remove all of the widgets from the label frame to add the new ones?
2. Am I better off just creating different label frames for each group of widgets and then just using grid_forget and grid_remember to hide or show them as I need them?
3. How else would you approach this problem?
Yes - I guess I am looking for some design advice. This is creeping a little since my customer (my wife who is a horse breeder) would like to have some things done a little differently in her app.
Thanks for your suggestions!
