Actually it's called a "hallway page". The purpose is to provide a page with a link to EVERY page in your site to assure that the spiders will easily find them all. Can't hurt to use absolute links on the hallway page (Excite USED to prefer them) but it probably doesn't matter anymore. Also, on a hallway page DO NOT use any title or meta tags. You don't want the page to rank in SE results (not a great page for the web surffer to come accross), just want the spider to follow the links.
