CSS Question

How to make these two <div> inline?

I'm editing someone other's code, there's an existing form and css file, what I did is that I added 5 "select" tags into the form, and I want to make the selects inline.

Each select has a label, so I put them two in a div, thus I have 5 divs.
I want to put the first 3 div in one row, and last 2 in another row.
I was working on the css file for hours to get things work, but still failed.

The problem I'm getting now is that I cannot put the s in the same line, each of them occupies a separate line, so I have 5 rows in the form now... but I just need 2 rows.

Please help me on that, not quite familiar with CSS.

<html>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/mrbs.css.php" type="text/css">
<link rel="stylesheet" media="print" href="css/mrbs-print.css.php" type="text/css">
<form id="add_room" class="form_admin" action="addsystem.php" method="post">
<fieldset>
<legend>Add System</legend>

<div id="sdw-div" style="white-space:nowrap; display:inline">
<label for = "sdw">sdw:</label>
<select id="sdw" name="sdw" style="display:inline">
<option selected="selected" value="0">0</option>
<option value="1">1</option>
<option value="2">2</option>
<option value="3">3</option>
<option value="4">4</option>
</select>
</div>

<div id="etl-div" style="white-space:nowrap; display:inline">
<label for = "etl">etl:</label>
<select id="etl" style="display:inline" name = "etl">
<option selected="selected" value="0">0</option>
<option value="1">1</option>
<option value="2">2</option>
<option value="3">3</option>
<option value="4">4</option>
</select>
</div>

<div id="hdm-div" style="white-space:nowrap; display:inline">
<label for = "hdm">hdm:</label>
<select id="hdm" style="display:inline" name = "hdm">
<option selected="selected" value="0">0</option>
<option value="1">1</option>
<option value="2">2</option>
<option value="3">3</option>
<option value="4">4</option>
</select>
</div><strong>

.........other two are just the same....

</form>
</html></strong>


and here is the css file for form_admin

form.form_admin {float: left; clear: left; margin: 2em 0 0 0}
.form_admin fieldset {float: left; width: auto; border: 1px solid <?php echo $admin_table_border_color ?>; padding: 1em}
.form_admin legend {font-size: small}
.form_admin div {float:left; clear:left;}
.form_admin label {
display: block; float: left; clear: left;
width: <?php echo $admin_form_label_width ?>em; min-height: 2.0em; text-align: right;
}
.form_admin input {
display: block; float: left; clear: right;
</strong> width: <?php echo $admin_form_input_width ?>em;
margin-top: -0.2em; margin-left: <?php echo $admin_form_gap ?>em;
font-family: <?php echo $standard_font_family ?>; font-size: small;
}
.form_admin select {
display: block; float: left; clear:right; margin-left: 1.0em;
}

.form_admin input.submit {
width: auto; margin-top: 1.2em; margin-left: <?php echo number_format(($admin_form_gap + $admin_form_label_width), 1, '.', '')?>em
}

Answer

Give div a float:left; css that will display them as inline.

Also remove <strong> from end of html tag.
