Very basic rule of thumb is tht the frame size should approximately match the distance from your crotch to the floor.  This is only a rule of thumb though, and many other factors come into play when matching a rider to a bike.

Check this size guide, taken from the Scott website a few years back. May only be relevant to compact frames (Scott in particular) but it should give you an idea...
